Hello:

My external javascript files are not being recognized in Spring MVC. For example I have:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/js/sample.js"></script>

in my JSP. My javascript files are in a directory called "js" which is immediately inside the context root. Therefore, you would think:

<mvc:resources mapping="/js/**" location="/js/"/>

in the context file would take care of this but it doesn't. I have tried all kinds of variations in the <script> tag and the <mvc:resources> tag to no avail.

I'm looking for ideas because I'm stumped.

Thanks
Eric

Your URLs should all start with the context path.

Programatically, it can be obtained via ${pageContext.request.contextPath}

Ok its working, I guess I didn't try putting in the context root with the current <mvc:resources> I tried.
