Hi friends, Need some help from u guys....I am developing an application using JSP and Tomcat 5.0.In the html tag inside jsp pages i am refering to images which r located in a particular folder inside the web application folder.My doubt is when i refer to the image do i hard-code the destination directory or should i use the some other logical method (such that i don't need to hard-code the path) in the jsp page. Kindly advise..... ......thxs in advance. Prat.
You can specify the images in two ways: 1. Document Relative 2. Document Root Relative. In the former, the reference could be given as: <img src="../images/cm_banner.png"> where images is a folder directly under the web contents. In the second way, the path is given as: <img src="/CIF/CM/images/cm_banner.png"> that is relative to the root. Note that CIF/CM is the context root in this case. Regards, Ankur
The image paths can also be hardcoded if you want to, though the practice is not adviseable.
