Hi all,

I have written the following code in "web.xml" to include "header.jsp" and "footer.jsp" in all the jsp files in the application but it is not working.Is there something wrong with the code?

Where did you place the header.jsp and footer.jsp files?

They should be in the root folder of the web app.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
