hey folks,
i have a servlet wich forwards a request to the jsp site (getRequestDispatcher("...").forward(..,..).
the problem is that the jsp's site background doesn't downoad. it downloads ok when i load the jsp page in my browser. i still see the html command pointering the background file in the source of the jsp page after the download...
and yes,it works fine if i try to use sendRedirect from the servlet...
can't understand what's the problem. did anyone expect it earlier?
i use ie6,tomcat 4.0..
thanks

I bet the href for the image is not an absolute one. All the browser has to go on when it requests a resource such as an image, sound file, applet class, whatever, is the original URL that fetched the page. In your case this is the servlet. You can:
1. Use an absolute URL for the image
- or -
2. Establish a "base" URL in the head area of the page using the base tag. Then you can address resources relative to this base.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
