Hi

I am trying to create a web application using the Spring MVC framework, but I am not sure where Javascript files go within the folder structure. Does it go within the WEB-INF folder or else where??

Thanks!

No, they go anywhere but there. The browser has to be able to download them. So just treat them exactly the same as you would treat an image or an HTML file in your web application.

I actucally just figured it out a few minutes ago haha. I placed them in a new folder under WebContent. Thanks for the reply though.

I usually put them in a folder named "scripts", just like I put my stylesheets in a folder named "styles".
