Sun Java System Access Manager 7.1 Developer's Guide

Staging Area for Files to be Customized

When Access Manager is installed, a staging area exists in the following location:


This directory content is identical to the content of the services.war.

The AccessManager-base/SUNWam/web-src/services contains all the files you need to modify the authentication GUI. When you install Access Manager on Sun Java System Application Server, on Sun Java System Web Server, or on BEA WebLogic Web Server, services.war (the services web application) is automatically installed and deployed.

If you install Access Manager on other web containers, you may have to manually deploy services.war. See the documentation that comes with the web container.

Once you’ve modified the authentication GUI files in the staging area, in order to see the changes in the actual GUI, you must update and then redeploy services.war. See Updating and Redeploying services.war.
