Jsps are in the root directory for webcontent Static content is on a sep. http server in: htdocs/en_US/js/global.js if I'm not getting my static content displayed, is it because: a) relative path is wrong - I need actual path? how do I calculate this? b) path is worng on http server? needs servlet context somehow? b) server-plugins are wrong? thanks Max
Max, HTTP clients have no notion of "context paths", so when they see "/js/something.js", they try and fetch exactly that. Have you tried to use javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest.getContextPath() to write out paths dynamically? That may be what you are looking for.
