Change background image and lgo to Bi launchpad


I´m trying to change the background color of the BI launchpad logon screen, but I didn't.

In the past few days I posted similar discussion(

and follow the guides from several users and i only get to change the name of the Bi launchpad.

I follow this guides and when I realize the changes nothing happen and I'm confuse in how to redeploy the war files to apply some changes

Someone have a more clear guide to change the look of the BI Launchpad

I only need to change the background color for an image

    Hi Jose,

    I got it figured out. It was not an easy solution, but it is working like a charm.

    Detail Description:

    The jsp files that are used for launchpad are NOT the files in the BOE\eclipse\plugins\webpath.InfoView\web\jsp directory. Those files are compiled using apache jasper so making changes to those files will not show up (except for the custom.jsp file).

    The compiled files are actually in the BOE\eclipse\plugins\com.businessobjects.webpath.InfoView_jsp.6.0.18.jar file.

    You will have to update the .java file located in that jar file and re-compile it.

    Any java IDE will work, but you will have to make sure in your IDE that all jar file libraries are in your IDE classpath when compiling.

    There are 2 places you can make the changes. The actual BOE.war file or the BOE directory in the tomcat work folder. If you make the changes in the work folder, then redeploying will overwrite any changes made.

    A background in java is necessary.
