2.3 Storing Application Images

Before setting up the directories to contain the images to be used in your LANSA Web applications, some thought and planning should be given to the directory structure and naming. Planning at this point will make maintenance of your images easier in the future.

A possible directory structure is to house common images in one directory and then application specific images in other directories and sub directories. Also, when you are performing development on production applications, additional and changed images can be located in a separate directory so they can be easily identified and relocated when required.

The LANSA export facility can be used to relocate your LANSA details but it will not identify or move your images. The care and maintenance of your images is your responsibility and for this reason, planning the structure of your image directories is worth the effort.
