hi <%@ include file="header.html" %> is it necessary that header.html should be present in the same directory as the jsp file? i get an error when i use a context relative path for example : Context Name : demo JSP directory : demo/web/jsp HTML directory : demo/web/html the following code gives me an error <%@ include file="/demo/web/html/header.html" %> why is this so? thanks /SAmith
That's because the context is relative to the URL, not to the web app path. A Context is part of the URL name, which is mapped to a directory path in the web.xml file. For the case you've listed, try: <%@ include file="/web/html/header.hml" %>
