Everything worked fine under VAJ 3.5 until I decided to download and experiment with WSAD (WebSphere Studio Application Developer). There my JSPs where loosing track of images and some other weird behavior. Looking at some examples I noticed that the getContextPath() is used in the action tag of the form. Since the curiosity kills the cat I decide to follow the pattern and surprisingly everything works like a charm. Is this the de-facto or the new paradigm or is this the right way of doing things? Has anyone else encountered the same behavior? Thanks for inputs.
