I am using the jasper reports plugin for Struts 2.2.3 and whenever I try to generate a HTML formatted report, all the images are broken. What appears to be the problem is the ImageServlet class that responds to image requests is not being called. Here is the relevant code:
The reason why I believe the ImageServlet isn't being called is I added the .java source code for that class in Eclipse and set a breakpoint at the beginning of the service method. When the code ran, the breakpoint was never reached.
