hi, when trying your examples or trying to make an example of my own, i seem to can not get the response.sendRedirect(response.encodeRedirectURL("www.google.com")); to work correctly. the problem: project xxx Web index.html secure login login.jsp hallo.jsp mainmenu mframes.html logo.jsp .... ..... WEB-INF classes com utilities tree treeview.class .... .... i start with login.jsp (a session is created) and perform an "response.sendRedirect("hallo.jsp");" and that works. on the page "hallo.jsp" i try to go after the submit button was pressed to "mainmenu/mframes.html" with an response.sendRedirect("/secure/mainmenu/mframes.html"); and that doesn't work. after pressing submit i am always returned to the "login.jsp". this is also the case if i choose to goto "logo.jsp". what am i doing wrong?
