<servlet-mapping> <servlet-name>bigServlet</servlet-name> <url-pattern>big/servlet/*</url-pattern> </servlet-mapping> The problem is when I'm trying to invoke request.getServletPath() inside _getdata.jsp, because it returns path:"/big_common/_getdata.jsp". But when I use <servlet-class>BigServlet</servlet-class> instead of <jsp-file> then the result of request.getServletPath(), invoked inside BigServlet, is "big/servlet/".Why I can't get path from <servlet-mapping> inside jsp file?
The impression I get from reading your text, is that you're complicating your life. I never mention my JSP's inside the web.xml. In my last web application, I only mentioned one servlet in the web.xml. This servlet decides which JSP it should call, depending on the different parameters which are in the request. So I wonder why you should be able to read the servletpath in your JSP. Try to let the servlet do all the work and let the JSP do the layout work.
