The <html:base/> tag puts an absolute reference to the jsp page generating it.

This is then used when using relative urls in the jsp so that the location of the resource you might want to include is calculated based on the location of the jsp instead of the contents of the request uri.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
