Method and System for Weight based Web Context Switching with Multiple Extended

Web Containers
Disclosed is a method and system for weight based context switching with multiple

extended web containers. The method and system provide multiple web containers and

describe loading patterns of a web context.

A web context is essentially a directory or a directory structure that is published on the

web. The web context typically includes a customization associated with the web

content. Examples of the web content include JSP*, HTML, Java* script, images etc. Consider an application specific context-extensions.xml. For example:

<Application context="

_

            DIR >/ABC.war"> <Extended-application location="

_APP

>/customization2.war" loadWeight="0.3"/>

In the above sample, "ABC.war" represents the web archive of an enterprise application

and "customization1.war" and "customization2.war" are extensions that are built at a

customer location that contains the web content.

Further, loadWeight corresponds to a variable with the range 0-1, wherein '0'

corresponds to the lowest weight and '1' corresponds to the highest weight. The above

configuration step can be either manual or implemented using a script or an

administration console UI.

Once the application is started, the application server looks in the specified location, for

example, ABC.war. If the resource is not found, the application server gets the list of

extended web context and then applications picks up the extended context which has

highest weight from the above example. Thus, customization1...
