Hi All,

I have one strange issue, JSP cannot Identify the JS, CSS file path when URL pattern is /*. Let me explain in detail.

Irrespective of relative path my application should have to call Home.jsp. So for that I have specified URL pattern as /*. This logic is working fine.
The application is calling JSP page but It cannot call the JS file. In the below Sample code I try to print two alert massages. But I am able to see only one alert message "welcome". Not able to see the alert message in Hi.js file. I tried with all possible scenarios by changing path but its not working. CAN ANY BODY PLEASE HELP ME IN THIS.

One more thing I have to mention here when I change the URL pattern to some /xyz its working fine. Please Help me in this issue.

My Directory Structure.

RedirectApp
+-----WEB-INF
+-----Home.jsp
+-----Hi.js
Web.xml



Home.jsp




Hi.js

A URL pattern of /* matches everything -- including all references to images, CSS, and so on. Don't use it. That's a very common beginner's error.

You can use that <welcome-file-list> attribute in your web.xml.

So if someone type localhost:8080/yourApp/ your container will redirect the user to the mapped file.

Thank You very much guys for your help

I solved the problem by modifying web xml file and Home jsp Script tag.

Web.xml


In Home.jsp for the script tag src I used
