"rcy",

There aren't may rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

The browser will look for a resource named "favicon.ico" in the root directory of your server.

Example:
GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1


The problem is that the browser will prepend the forward slash.
This means that the icon needs to be the root of the default application on your server to work.
