Commenting on Java, JavaFX, Java EE, Joomla, and IoT.

Serving a static files with Bloomreach (formally known as Hippo CMS), such as BingVerify.xml, is not as simple as dropping it in the webapp folder. However, with a little extra configuration Bloomreach CMS will serve the file.

First add the static file in webapp. In my case example site/src/main/webapp/BingSiteAuth.xml. Then update hts:default in sitemap.ymal akin to the following.

   hst:authenticated: false
   hst:containerresource: true
   jcr:primaryType: hst:sitemapitem

After rebuilding the project, the static file BingSiteAuth.xml will be served by Bloomreach CMS.
