I am trying to include a file in a jsp page. The application is running on linex.

I used:


But it is not working.
Any ideas?

The error message was file is not found. The file is there, however.

There is a space after the quote sign.
Also, it looks like you are importing a directory and not a file.

Is that path relative to the app?

No, it is an absolute path.



The "/servername" is a mount point on the app server.

Can I provide a absolute path for C:import?

I tried this:

<c:import url="c:/announcement.txt" />



and I got MalformedURLExcption

Of course not.

The path need to be relative to the web app root.

Then, in the jsp page, how can I include a file that is outside the web server?

You can't.

If a file is to be included, it needs to be (and should be) a part of the web app.
