"kamath",
We're really glad that you are here with us in the JSP forum, and there aren't many rules you'll have to worry about, but one is that proper names are required. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and change 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!

A relative path is one that is defined in relation to another (usually the current page being processed). An absolute path is one that is defined in absolute relation to another (usually the context, or server). Typically, you will find that absolute paths start with a "/", while relative paths start with a string identifier (i.e. "store/").
Hope that helps.
