Hi, I'm a newbie regarding modules in struts.I added a module to an app and encountered my first problem.

1. I have a lot of resources (images mostly) that are common to the whole application.Now, when I switch to my new module my tile definition gets all messed up (its looking for images in the wrong place).This gets fixed if I put the whole path in my images (E.g. /MyApp/images/img.gif).But I can't do that!.It must be something like /images/img.gif. How can this be fixed?

2. Can I have tiles that extend from definitions from other files?

3. I manage to have different tiles definition files and different strut-config files.Just by listing all my strut-config files in web.xml (coma separated).Like:



So what is the difference between this and having modules?

The only one of your questions I'll attempt to anwer is #1. If your current jsp is in a module such as /MyApp/MyModule, and your images are in /MyApp/images/, then you can reference an image in this directory by using ../images/myimage.gif. If all else fails, I use the following to avoid hard-coding the full path: <%= request.getContextPath()%>/images/myimage.gif.
