I am trying to set a background image in a servlet but it is not displaying it. I am using SunOne and TomCat and stored image in Web-Inf folder. Can anyone answer how to display the image???

Is it possible for you to paste your code over here, we would like to know how you are accessing the background "image", & why would you like to set an image background in a servlet..??

I'm assuming you want an image displayed in an HTML page - note that web servers are not allowed to directly serve ANY resource under WEB-INF so you will have to either move the image file or write servlet code to serve it. Naturally the image src in the HTML will have to match.
I agree. Here's the link:
