Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP6 NSAPI Programmer's Guide


After converting the logical URL of the requested resource to a physical path name in the NameTrans step, the server executes PathCheck directives to verify that the client is allowed to access the requested resource.

If there is more than one PathCheck directive, the server executes all of the directives in the order in which they appear, unless one of the directives denies access. If access is denied, the server switches to executing directives in the Error section.

If the NameTrans directive assigned a name or generated a physical path name that matches the name or ppath attribute of another object, the server first applies the PathCheck directives in the matching object before applying the directives in the default object.
