Subject:, Re: GeoNetwork usage issues - help requested

Brian Bishop
Hi Bob

For item 3, the issue is that geonetwork calls Intermap in two different
ways. If you are using Tomcat, by adding an extra context to cover both
calls should provide a usable workaround for now, i.e.:

<Context
    path="/geonetwork"
    docBase="/install_path/geonetwork/web/geonetwork"
    crossContext="false"
    debug="0"
    reloadable="false" />

    <Context
    path="/intermap"
    docBase="/install_path/geonetwork/web/intermap"
    crossContext="false"
    debug="0"
    reloadable="false" />  

    <Context
    path="/geonetwork/intermap"
    docBase="/install_path/geonetwork/web/intermap"
    crossContext="false"
    debug="0"
    reloadable="false" />  

Regards
Brian

Re: Subject:, Re: GeoNetwork usage issues - help requested

Bob Nutsch
Thanks Brian.

I'm still using Jetty but your comments reminded me of something I had
been thinking about.  I believe the problem is related to the actual
call to Intermap made from the main GeoNetwork page, main-page.xsl  That
call is "javascript:popInterMap('/geonetwork/intermap')"

I can access Intermap by using http://mymachine:8085/intermap/ .  

I edited line 517 in main-page.xsl to read <a
href="javascript:popInterMap('/intermap')"> so now Intermap opens up
from the main page.  I doubt if this is the correct fix though.  :-)

Thanks again, Bob
