Problem with URL iView & J2EE application


Hello people,

I'm quite new about Portal and facing this two problems:

The Portal i'm modifying is already up and running. It has an internal LAN name, and an external name (URL) which can be used to access it from internet.

I need to create an URL iView which should open a J2EE application, which is using the SAP Java WAS (was developed with Netweaver Developer Studio) and hosted in the same server as the Portal, but not integrated to it.

Since the application itself has no security mechanisms whatsoever, the idea was to integrate it inside the Portal using its authentication.

So, I created an URL iView which points to the application <b>using the local server address</b> (because it shouldn't be published straight to internet), and configured it Server-side.

Here are the problems:

1) When accesing the Portal from internet, the iView doesn't load the application. It just shows the application's main page text, but doesn't load the CSS style sheet neither any images. In case you're asking

- The server's proxy has already been configured

- There are no hardcoded URLs inside the application itself (all paths are relative).

2) The application shouldn't neither be accessible directly from the LAN if anyone knows its direct link. Is there any way to limit the access to it (probably modifying the application itself) so that it identifies the requests coming from the Portal and letting only those pass through?

Many thanks for any help.
