This section describes the conventions used throughout this guide.
File and directory paths
These are given in UNIX® format (with forward slashes separating directory names). For Windows versions, the directory paths are the same, except that backslashes are used to separate directories.
URLs are given in the format:
In these URLs, server is the server name where applications are run; domain is your Internet domain name; path is the directory structure of the server; and file is an individual file name. Italic items in URLs are placeholders.
Font conventions include:
The monospace font is used for sample code and code listings, API and language elements (such as function names and class names), file names, path names, directory names, and HTML tags.
Italic monospace type is used for code variables.
Italic type is also used for book titles, emphasis, variables and placeholders, and words used in the literal sense.
Bold type is used as either a paragraph lead-in or to indicate words used in the literal sense.
Installation root directories are indicated by install_dir in this guide.
By default, the location of install_dir is as follows:
On UNIX-based platforms: /opt/SUNWwbsvr/
On Windows: C:\Sun\WebServer6.1
