- The web.xml is in the folder ../Apache Software Foundation/Tomcat 7.0/webapps/Signpad/WEB-INF and looks like

Hard-coding the context path and using an absolute URL will get you ito trouble. Use a server-relative path (starting with the context path) and programmatically obtain the context path from the request.

See the JSP FAQ for details.
