    Unanswered: Deploying reports9i JSP files

    I have been developing 9iAS reports and deploying them as .rtf's which I call from forms using run_report_objects and web.show_documents. This all works fine.

    However I have had to develop a .jsp report and I am unsure of how to deploy it on our application server (UNIX sun solaris 5.8). I have look on OTN and metalink for advice on how to do this but can't find a clear explantion.

    Can anyone explain the best way of deploying .jsp reports so they can be called from 9ias forms?

    I'm no JSP expert (on a good day I can barely spell JSP).
    I've always thought that JSP's are "invoked" via a "standard" URL.

    I appreciate your comments,

    Yes jsp’s can be invoked from a URL but being a report they have to be run via a reports server. Therefore they must be stored in a specific directory where they can be found, at run time by that reports server.

    So while JSP's can be ‘ "invoked" via a "standard" URL ‘, and I am trying to find out how to set up the system so I can do just that.

    Technically speaking, the statement above is not correct.
    JSP's can be run on 9iAS R2 V9.0.3; which does not contain Form or Reports.
    JSP's are runing via OC4J only with the assistance from Apache's mod_oc4j plugin. Where the JSP's reside is strictly a function of httpd.conf file contents.
