Setting web client preferences

You can define global web client preferences from the web configuration file (web.xml). You can find the web.xml file in the sm/WEB-INF folder of your application server installation. This file contains global preferences that you can change by editing the file with any text or XML editor. Any changes that you make to this file must conform to XML syntax requirements. You must have administrative access to the server operating system in order to set global web client preferences.

The settings that you define in the web.xml file determine the default client preferences for all web clients. However, users can override some of these preferences directly from the URL. For more information about which preferences users can set from the URL, see the comments in the web configuration file.
