I have been beating my chest trying to fix this in vain. Please help! Here is my problem. In my jsp file, I have a jsp (under webdev\jsp) include: <jsp:include page="http://localhost:8080/webdev/servlet/Counter" flush="true" /> Here "Counter" is a servlet which will output a number. But the above jsp:include doesn't seem to output anything, not even an error message. I tried to use the absolute path such as "C:\tomcat\webapps\webdev\web-inf\classes\Counter", but it outputed nothing either. What did I do wrong? BTW, I am running tomcat. Thanks! Sam
The answer is easy to find in the JSP specification. Look up the <jsp:include> syntax. It says that the value of the page attribute has to be a relative URL specification, either "/something", which is interpreted as starting at the root of the servlet context, or "somethingElse", which is relative to the current JSP page. URL's like "http://..." and "C:/..." don't work.
