Hi, 

I've got a use case where I need to store and serve static html, js, css, images, flash videos, and etc from the JCR. 

The only suggestions I could find on how to do this come from this article. http://blogs.adobe.com/dekesmith/2012/05/22/place-simple-html-and-image-files-online-with-crx-and-cq...

I've tried all methods of uploading my static content as described in the article and have been able to consistently upload my static content to the JCR. However, the problem that I'm facing is actually trying to render the content. 

In AEM 6.2, when I attempt to hit the static content, such as: /content/some-site/some-static-page.html, it is treated like a binary download. It does the same for all the other filetypes that I've uploaded. Instead of trying to render them, it simply downloads them to my computer.

I noticed that the article was written in 2012, so I tried this on an older version of AEM, specifically 5.6.1, and I was successfully able to render the content within the browser.

I think it has something to do with the one of the rendering servlets, but I'm not sure. Any help is greatly appreciated.

smacdonald2008, vmehrotr Have same requirement, is there a way to enable this for all the HTML files added under a specific location. Like if I need to show all the HTML files under content/mySite/htmlFiles.

I tried with content/mySite/htmlFiles(/.*), but it does not work.

Client does not want to check the box due to mentioned security concerns.

Please suggest......Thanks
