in my jsp page I have a link which should linke to one secure zip file, we'd like to put under the /WEB-INF/ since the webuser can't directly access them by typing the file URL.

but the authorized user should still be able to access it, so I tried to make the access link to call a Struts action, which forward back the zip file. somehow, it does not work. I am wondering does Websphere container suport server side redirect files which are put under /WEB-INF?

here is the struts action mapping I used (which is not working, the web page display HTTP 403 forbidden error) :
<action <br /> path="/download"<br /> type="org.apache.struts.actions.ForwardAction"<br /> parameter="/WEB-INF/downlaod/my.zip" />

Can someone shed me some light on this?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
