Re: 403 error while accessing with only context root2012-11-19T18:45:02ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Why do you think this is HTTP server issue?
If you have disabled static content on WAS means that WAS will not server static content. But, if the static content is within your application's context root then you will start seeing 403 errors. For using IHS to server static content you have to make the static content assets available under the document root of the HTTP server and your html/jsp should use the IHS server location for these assets.
