I've added the sling mapping rules by creating a node under map.publish -> http and created a node with name localhost.8080 and added the following property:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
Also, I've added the mapping rules in org.apache.sling.jcr.resource.internal.JcrFesourceResolverFactoryImpl.xml
Now, page hierarchy is content -> sample -> en -> customers and when I try to access any page on publish instance e.g. http:localhost:4503/customers.html then it works fine. But, when the same customers page I try to access using web server http:localhost:8080/customers.html then it shows 404 error.
However, when I try to resolve both the publish and web server url in jcrresolver in felix console, then both are getting resolved to /content/sample/en/customers.
Is there anything am I missing here?
You need to check the dispatcher.any and httpd.conf. Are you able to get the page when hitting http:localhost:8080/content/sample/en/customers.html?
You might need to check the renders config in Dispatcher.any and dispatcher module in httpd.conf
FYI, you can check the reference here We.Retail dispatcher.any and httpd.conf · GitHub or share your dispatcher.any and httpd.conf configs.
Your dispatcher may have a blanket deny for all incoming request and selective allow in dispatcher /filter configuration section, so it must be blocking the incoming request in dispatcher itself.
