MAP configuration files
MAP uses the following configuration files, which are stored in the was_profile_root/map/config
This file contains the MAP configuration parameters.
Note: The topic MAP configuration parameters in the Multi-Channel Server 6.3.1 information center plug-in describes the parameters for this file.
This file is used to control the MAP logging level, and to enable tracing.
Note: See the topic Log and Trace Information for more information about this file.
If you need to modify the ics-config.xml
files, follow these steps:
- Modify the versions in the was_profile_root/map/config directory.
- Restart the application server using the following commands:
was_root/bin/stopServer.sh server_name -username WAS_admin -password WAS_admin_password_value
was_root\bin\stopServer server_name -username WAS_admin -password WAS_admin_password_value
specifies the name of the WebSphere
® Application Server to which the MAP enterprise application is mapped (for example, WebSphere_Portal
If you are using MAP in a clustered environment, you must update ics-config.xml
and restart the application server on each node in the cluster.
Configuring MAP to access images on a web server
MAP can be configured to request images from the WebSphere
Portal server or messaging web application. This mode of operation would be used if the images are included in portlet WAR files in an images directory in the MPATheme enterprise archive (EAR), or in the messaging web application EAR. However, it is more efficient if MAP is configured to request images from a web server. The imgHost
attributes in the ics-config.xml
should be configured to specify the host name and port number of the web server.
If the images for some portlets or messages are not on the web server that is configured in ics-config.xml
, the portlets or messages should use the v.imgHost
parameters to specify the web server where the images are located.
If MAP is installed in WebSphere Portal server where MAP is also installed, you need to edit ics-config.xml
located in the map_installLocation/installedApps/yournode/map.ear/map.war/WEB-INF/
directory and update imgHost="
, which you can leave blank, and imgPort='mapport'
, for example 9080.
See the section Media Access Proxy
in the Multi-Channel Server 6.3.1 information center plug-in for more details on these parameters.
After you perform the basic configuration of the MAP, configure your WebSphere
Application Server data source for MAP.
