As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.
New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.
What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.
During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.
Is there a setting in WF that turns images off ? These images appear the "little red x" similar to a broken link.
I've all of a sudden lost the images that I had previously installed and subsequently viewed successfully.
I've checked IE's option to display images on webpages, and images are not disabled, and all other (non-WF) images are visible as usual.
I sent the entire project to a colleague, who simply copied my MAINTAIN code to the same folder name on his computer, and it works fine, and all the images appear perfectly. Just not on my Win XP PC.
Is there a setting in WF that turns images off ? How could I have accidentally disabled them ? I've re-started WF, and re-booted the computer as well) and tried again several times (for the past several days) but the images still refuse to appear.
Charles In IE, under Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, Multimedia, there IS a Show Pictures check box. Could you have unchecked that?
In the Maintain application, when you see the image place holder, right-click and grab the properties. Do they look correct? If you place that URL in the search bar of the browser, the image should display. Otherwise, maybe when you deploy the path is getting corrupt.

Charles One more thing to check. Tomcat MAY be case sensative. In the paths that you posted EVERYTHING is in lower case. Check the names of your apps and fanclub folders. Are they in lower case as well? If not, see if you can rename them.
If you enter the http address, it results in http 404 - not found. If you enter the disk address - no problem. This can only mean one thing imho, and that is that you do not have permission to view the resource when going through a anonymous way of getting to the resuorce. Please check to see if the security for your approot (and underlying directories and files) includes 'users' and 'Anonymous logon' with at least read permission.
Hope this helps...

I think a key point here is that there are two separate entities involved in creating a maintain page.
1) the IBI Webfocus Server creates the html content of the page, from components read from the Apps folder, and hands it off to the,
This separation of duties and file locations is so the two different servers can be on different machines. Running in Dev. Studio everything is on one machine and is preconfigured for ease of use. But, if you go through the process of setting up a deployment for your project, you'll see the different destinations of the two sets of file types.
So, be sure to check that your Web Servers /approot alais is setup correctly, and also make sure that the (project) subfolder under the /approot matches and contains the image files, as they are in your development environment.
Note: if you view the undeployed .mnt file in a text editor (not D.S.), and do a find on the image file name, you should be able to see the relative path specified for that file.
Charlz, If you rightclick on the lost image and select properties, what do you get ?
This certainly looks like a Web server issue.
My suggestion is to track the problem back from the web page, start with the image link. Check the web server alias, test the alias to see if it works, if other files are accessible from the alias. It is important to gather info to determine what the problem actually is.
