My application homepage is taking around 12-15 seconds to show up on IE.

I used HTTPWatch for analysing the download time taken by jsp, images,css etc..

I noticed my jsp gets downloaded in 4-7 seconds, but rest of the time is consumed for images and css files.

I gave System.currentTimeMillis() at the start of the homepage jsp and also at the end of the jsp. The result was between 3-5 seconds.{httpwatch was showing 4-7)

My directory structure is


Please suggest How Can I reduce the time taken for image downloads.

Simplify your home page to use fewer resources.

Consider loading some elements by JavaScript after the main page has been displayed.

Its a design problem with no direct java solution.
