Displaying images using JSP

Hi again,
Well I am new to JSP so just bare with me. I am trying to open a JSP file, but when I do the images, which I've on the page are not showing. Actually even when I click on the images directly when I am on http://localhost:8080/images I keep on getting page not found. Is there any way to get the images to be shown.
Thanks in advance

make sure you've set the context for your images.
eg. in tomcat you have the server.xml in the TOMCAT_HOME/conf directory. open this with texteditor and take a look at it. you can see from the existing contexts how you should define your new contexts.... hope this helps

?? images shouldn't need a separate context.

It might be a mistake in the HTML. If the page displays, but the images are the typical box with a little red 'x', then make sure the <img src="/images/image1.gif"> tag is correct. In this example, you'd need an images directory under the <webaps>/<webroot> directory.
I agree. Here's the link:
