Thank you for reading my post.
My problem is about using a Chart library which works well in jsf application
but it does not works in JSF portlets.
I think i find the problem but i do not know the solution.
to use this charting library we should add a servlet to web.xml

something like :

so , when we try to load a chart , it will make the chart image source something like :


in the above sample , adv is the name of web application which is deployed in a servlet container.
and filter applied to make the chart render-able.

to use the chart library in jsf portlet , i add the servlet description as i did for web application , so i add

to my portlet web.xml file.

when we have portlet , the url to access that portlet (which indeed is a web application) changes
for example url for a sample portlet with same web application name will be like

as you can see there are some prefix to web application name in the url , but when i use chart component to show
same chart , it still look for the chart in url like :


As you may already sugest , the image will not render because browser is looking in wrong place.
now i think if i find some way to map that servlet to correct url pattern it will works.

my question is :
1-what will be new servlet url pattern ?
2-is my assumption correct ?

Thank you very much for reading such a long post
