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.

Thanks for replying so quick, but here is the case:

The static HTML files are not created in AEM, a different team designs ant write contents to them. Till 6.2 these HTML files were loading fine and now with 6.4 , we can not change the headers for hundreds of already live files.

I debugged more meanwhile for Dam safe Binary filter and observed that the configurations are not bound to any bundle in 6.4.

In 6.2 it was bound to a bundle under libs "jcrinstall:/libs/dam/install/cq-dam-core-5.8.172.jar".

what has happened to this configuration in 6.4?
