Hi all,

i have a JSP page in which im having one navigation bar created using JavaScript and DHTML.
all the javascript coding is done in seprate javascript file which i load in jsp using script tag

Now if i invoke that JSP directly from tomcat. Everything works fine Navigation bar is shown .

Now if i use RequestDispatcher from a servlet to call that JSP page Navigation Bar does not appear there is no script error.

I have checked this problem is occuring only when i use request dispatcher to call JSp Page . if i use send redirect then it works fine but if i use requestdispatch it does not work javascript file does not get loaded.

please help..any clue

I am betting that the way the script is loaded depends on what the browser thinks is the directory that originates the page. You get the same problem with loading images with a servlet generated page.
My suggestion is that you use the BASE tag in the generated page to specify where the browser should look for resources. An alternative would be to give a complete location for the javascript file instead of a relative one.
