i stored my *.js files in WEB-INF folder



and defination of it in my jsp file is

<!-- this Script for Calender-->
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>JS Calendar (positioning test)</title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/WEB-INF/js/calendar.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/WEB-INF/js/calendar-setup.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/WEB-INF/js/calendar-en.js"></script>
<style type="text/css"> @import
url("/WEB-INF/css/calendar-win2k-cold-1.css"); </style>

and create war of it

but when i try to open the file in browser it gives javascript error

i follow same way in prevoius application

and it works fine but difference is that i have not kept my *.js files in WEB-INF folder but at the same lavel as that of WEB-INF
and did not create WAR just deploy my application in webapps of Apache Tomcat

what is the problem in this case
is it because of war file

Browsers can't access files residing under WEB-INF directory.
You'll need to either move them out of WEB-INF or write some code that streams their contents to the browser.
