web.xml: see the servlet specification - it explains everything that's in that file

context.xml: see the Tomcat documentation

In a nutshell:
The web.xml is for application configuration. The context.xml is for environment configuration.

context.xml is the environment file made by the Netbeans IDE and varies from project to project, basically it has all links and configuration needed for eachtime you reload the project in netBeans

i am developing a small simple project in struts framework.
in which a accept a roll no from user and display result..
for displaying i have two jsp(pass.jsp and fail.jsp)
one struts action (ResultGenAction.java)
one strutsformBean(ResultGenBean.java)
bean fetches marks from database acctording to rollno given be user and sends a boolean value true and false showing pass or fail.
if pass then view should be pass.jsp.
if fail then view should be fail.jsp.
i have made forward entries in struts-config file..
as:-
<action input="/" name="ResultGenBean" path="/EnterRoll.jsp" scope="request" type="Result.ResultGenAction" validate="false">
<forward name="p" path="/WEB-INF/pass.jsp"/>
<forward name="f" path="/WEB-INF/fail.jsp"/>
</action>

when i enter roll no for example 101 which is available in database and it is pass,but i get a blank response instead of a full marksheet through pass.jsp
same for all roll nos....it is not working

please help me in sorting out this problem..

Please be sure to ask Struts questions in the Struts forum. I have moved this post there for you.

Any path under WEB-INF is inaccessible to external web browsers. This is why it is a secure place for us to put our configuration files, class files and library dependencies.
