Toshio, thanks for the information. It was quire helpful. 

But now I have more questions :)
Since currentle there isn't %{_sysconfdir}/js.d/ wouldn't it be better if i 
create a %{_sysconfdir}/httpd/conf.d/jslibs.conf in which I define alias for my 
library:
  Alias /js/extjs /usr/share/extjs

And we can then add additional aliases to that file.

Do you mean that I have to have a %{_sysconfdir}/httpd/conf.d/hawk.conf (Hawk 
is the name of my application). And in it to have aliases setup for my 
application? If so, where should the web interface reside? Under 
%{_datadir}/hawk ?
