Hi All

I'm trying to insert few images on the JSP page.

but i would like to link those images from images folder in the application directory...

for e.g. images are in folder C:/JSPproject/images and i would like to insert them in page C:\JSPproject\web\myfirstpage.jsp

So my questions are...
1) Can i create images folder in JSP project? if yes, how?
2) Can i create CSS file in JSP project? if yes, how? or was the alnernative?
3) How can i give the reference to the css file from the JSP page?

Please its very urgent...any ideas welcomed


Thanks

simply put them in the root directory of your application, in other words

JSPProject
|______ images
|                   |_____ img.png
|______ css
|______ page1.jsp
|______ folder1
|                  |_____ page2.jsp
|______ WEB-INF


now in page1.jsp if you want to get a reference of img.png you do in the href of the image tag "images/img.png" while if you want to use the img.png in the page2.jsp you have to do "../images/img.png".

or you can start your paths with a "/" to start from the root.

its just a matter of directories, the same thing is done for css, javascript or any other file you want to use

Hi Omar

Thanks for your reply.

I tried to follow as you said...here is my html code

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
<title>JSP Page</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Hello World!</h1>
<A href="..\images1\chicklet.png" ID="image1">Inserting image on page.</A>
</body>
</html>

images are in C:\JSPProject \images1\chicklet.png and ....
JSP file is in...C:\JSPProject\web\myfirstpage.jsp

I'm using Netbeans 6.5 for developing this JSP page.

Could you please tell me what im doing wrong here?


Thanks

I never used Netbeans for web page development, however try to locate a folder in your project that is named WEB-INF and create a sibling folder for it and name it img. (may be the WEB-INF folder is under a folder named web). and put your image inside the folder you created which is "img".


and reference your image in the JSP using this path "img/chicklet.png"


if you don't get it then i would suggest you to better understand how is the structure of a Java web application by visiting this page

If you have created a web project in NetBeans, you must be having a Web Pages folder under your project directory. This will have more folders like:
META-INF
WEB-INF
and your JSP pages.

You can create an images folder right here. And access the images simply images/imagesname.jpg

Hope this helps.

See the JSP FAQ for information on properly formatting resource URLs. Using .. and \ are problems you need to fix.

Using absolute physical paths (containing something like "C:") is an even bigger problem than what Bear mentioned. You need to avoid all of those.

http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ResourceUrlProblems is the page you should have read.
