Problem in accessing dynamically created image in <img src=""> tag

Hi,

I am using Tomcat5.5 and Struts2.
I am creating a image in my action class and i am storing it on my machine's disk giving the absolute path of the project.
After its success i am redirecting to the jsp page where in i want to display this image.
I am using <img src=""> tag in jsp to do this. In src attribute i am giving a relative path of the image to access.

Now the problem is - it is not taking the image from this relative path until and unless I refresh the folder structure in eclipse.
The image file exists on the disk but until i refresh the project from eclipse manually, the image is not getting displayed.

Is this a container (Tomcat) problem or something else?

Please provide me some solution on the same.


Thanks,
Sunny

Sunny,
What directory is the image in? Could it be in a "source" directory that Eclipse is copying elsewhere upon refresh?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
