LogOn Page, How to set the "GET SUPPORT" link to my web dynpro application.

Hi Gurus,

We are on EP7 / ECC 6

Clients wanted to reset their passwords from the logon screen. I have enabled the get support link in logon page.But unfortunately in my company every user doesn't have e-mail. So the requirement is, when the user gives uid, lastname, first name on the password reset screen it should reset to default password.(reset to lastname + last four digits of SSN). I wrote a seperate webdynpro applicaiton which pulls the ssn from R/3 and does this.

SAP provides web dynpro application for password reset. Initially i thought I could modify existing application. But as i couldn't get the source and I am not sure how to get the current executable to NWDS, I started creating new web dynpro app.

Now I wanted to place my webdynpro for get_support link. I know where to change it but not sure how to change it. I have two options:

1. The link is hard coded in LogOnBean java of umelogonbase.jar. I have decompiled this classfile and I can replace the link with my application link, but I am not able to compile it(as a standalone java from command prompt) back as some packages are missing(two packages are missing, I couldn't get them and place them in my class path). I tried doing it thru NWDS but I am not sure of the process.(I down loaded the jadclipse decompiler plug in to NWDS but some how I am not able to change).

2. I think I can modify the UMLogonPage.jsp, where in once jsp got the url string from, I wanted to do cosmetic changes to this url and replace the substring with my url. But I wanted to test it, before I can pack as jar and then par and deply it. How could I test this jsp page? how could I make sure that what I am doing is correct before the actual deployment??

Can some one please suggest? please suggest me some easy way of doing it.

Thank You,
