Locators Registry Key
A Locator allows you to redirect a folder specified in the URL to another.
The target folder may exist or be created as a virtual folder by a ZIP (or
JAR) file named and positioned as would the folder. For example, an
application may include configuration web pages along with executable program
code. A Locator can be registered to redirect an appropriately named folder
to the program JAR file. The target folder may exist anywhere in the JNIOR
The /WebServer/Locator redirects web page access to locations that are
subject to authentication (login) as might be required by the setting of
the /WebServer/Login key. The folder to be referenced in the URL is defined
in the key name replacing [FOLDER] and the key value defines the target folder
The /WebServer/Public redirects web page access to locations that are NOT
subject to authentication (login) regardless of the /WebServer/Login key.
The folder to be referenced in the URL is defined in the key name replacing
[FOLDER] and the key value defines the target folder location.
The JANOS Help System creates a /WebServer/Public/manpages entry in the
Registry which allows web access to images included in Help entries. Although
otherwise located those image files then appear to the external browser as
being in a manpages folder.
