Resource mapping is the process of tying a particular file type to a process in the web server that can serve that type of file to a requesting client and identify which file types are not to be delivered to a client. By not specifying which files can and cannot be served to a user, the web server could deliver to a user web server configuration files, log files, password files, etc. As Tomcat is a Java-based web server, the main file extension used is *.jsp. This check ensures that the *.jsp and *.jspx file types has been properly mapped to servlets.
Navigate to and open /usr/lib/vmware-vsphere-ui/server/conf/web.xml. Navigate to and locate the mapping for the JSP servlet. It is the <servlet-mapping> node that contains <servlet-name>jsp</servlet-name>. Configure the <servlet-mapping> node to look like the code snippet below: <!-- The mappings for the JSP servlet --> <servlet-mapping> <servlet-name>jsp</servlet-name> <url-pattern>*.jsp</url-pattern> <url-pattern>*.jspx</url-pattern> </servlet-mapping>
