    The default is in the file .
    - Find the key which is used in the tag and change the text after the equal sign.
    - Save the changed file and create a updated JAR file using a zip program. The file needs to be named exactly umelogonbase.jar

    You are done on this now.

    To exchange the two images, which are by default on the logon page, do the following steps:
    a. Copy the image(s) you want to use in your project in the the folder dist/layout
    b. Find the < img src="" > you want to work on in the umBotArea.txt

    Change the src attribute in the img tag to src="<%=webpath + "layout/myPic.gif" %>". The webpath is already defined in the file logon_proxy.txt and ready to use. In the Netweaver portal 6.0 SP9 and higher you have 2 images on the right side.
