JSTL (c:url) - problem with jsessionid
posted 12 years ago

<Context path="" docBase="/path-to-unpackedWAR/">
<Parameter name="some-name" value="some-value"/>
<Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger" prefix="localhost_myapp_log." suffix=".txt" timestamp="true"/>
the docBase elements points to the location where previously I have unpacked the application's war file.
2. Used is JSTL's <c:url> tag to ensure URL encoding (for disabled cookies scenario).

What I have found:

then everythink is fine. the <c:url value="some-resource"> encodes url properly and gives the following
