weblogic application.xml

i just finished solving another simple task.

problem description:
there are three projects inside the application. Front_End, Pricing_Admin_Engine, and Help_Context.

deployment of previous two applications have no problem, since they are standard Java EE applications. deployment Help_Context have problems. As the project structure is

the root of this project is CFC_Static_Content, and the required resource is at CFC_Static_Content\cfc_static\help\db\enUS\content\cfc.xml
once deployed as it is, the url would be
CFC_Static_Content/cfc_static/help/db/enUS/content/cfc.xml, while required is /help/db/enUS/content/cfc.xml.

for some, this is a very simple problem, and the solution is also very simple, just add a META-INF folder, to contain new created application.xml, inside which specifiy as

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<application id="CFC" version="5"
	xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
	xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/application_5.xsd">
	<display-name>CFC Static Content</display-name>
	<module id="WebModule_CFC_Help">
		<web>
			<web-uri>cfc_static/help</web-uri>
			<context-root>/help</context-root>
		</web>
	</module>
</application>
