But NO luck is this is the correct way or do we need to any toher changes.Please send me some helpful documents.Which resolves the problem.

i) The Logon screen files are in ( a zipped file) which can be copied from

">Import .

b.) Choose the option PAR file. Select Next and a popup window

iv) If the Par file is imported without any errors then we are set to make changes in the jsp files and the images the jsp files can to seen in the NWDS navigate to the PORTAL-INF through the dist folder.

V)There are seven jsp files and four text files which comprises of basic functionality of the Logon Page.

Changing The Text

VI)Before we move on to changing the text it is necessary to know how does that text appear on the screen .The text is stored in umelogonbase.jar which is in the lib folder of PORTAL-INF.( There has to be two files umelogonbase.jar and , if these files are not there ,then unzip the original par file and copy from them .If These files are not there then while deploying it will show Error).

VII)Once you open the umelogonbase.jar file there are some properties file which define the messages according to the language.Locate which contains the message ¡§WELCOME¡¨ under xtit_WELCOME.

    Once you import the logon par file into NWDS. and after making the changes to the jsp file in the par. did u build the new par file.

    My suggestion is once you build the par file then export the new par file with the same name(orignal par file name) then in portal go to system admin->support ->

    after that click portal runtime -> adminsitration console

    Upload the par file.

    If the par file is giving error then again deploy the old pa file for safe. Take care of storing the original par file before playing.

    Hi Shwetha,

    I would recomend the second way for Logon Screen Customization the winzip one.

    First take the backup of original .par file and then open the .zip file using winzip copy the contents of concerned file in any good editor like notepad++.

    Make the changes as per your requirement and save it within the structure with same name.

    In that way everything is maintained and this is a very fast way for logon screen customization.
