I have an application that uses frames. The problem that I am experiencing is that when I go to a page that loads a new frameset all of my links and buttons work correctly - that is they produce the correct url: www.companyname.com/action.do?parameter1=blah . Now when I click one of these links it populates a new page in the frameset, but the links are all messed up. They all include an extra "/" before the action name: www.companyname.com//action.do?parameter=blah <http://www.companyname.com/action.do?parameter=blah> . This extra "/" is also found in the <base href="."/> element for these pages.
This problem only occurs when I deploy the application (tomcat standalone no apache involved) onto a linux box. The problem does not occur when I test things on my windows box using eclipse and the tomcat sysdeo plugin.
