Hi,

I am working on making certain code enhancements to .JSP file that have Java and HTML components. When I am making my changes directly in /libs, it is being displayed perfectly on the page. But, when I try to overlay this JSP by the usual technique, the code from the JSP is not being displayed at all. That means, neither the original /libs content nor the overlayed /apps content wherein I have made the changes.
FYI, I am working with DITA files and the DITA plugin is already installed. Does it need anything else to overlay? Please let me know if more info is needed.

Thanks in advance!

Could you check error logs for any possible error/warnings or syntax issues in jsp?

These changes are not visible on the author or publish instance?

If it is a publish instance, are you sure that you are publishing the JSP again (this is not a page activation)?

A simple overlay should suffice. Can you give the name of the package you would like to customize?

Hi,

At times we miss out on providing the entire path in overlayed file, "/libs/fmdita/components/dita/common/localization.jsp". Hope that is proper.

Hi,

Thank you all for the replies.
Turns out that there was some server issue due to which my changes were not visible. I was struggling for 2 days to reflect my changes. Then, suddenly on the third morning, it started working! I didn't have to do anything extra for overlaying.

Thanks!
