Hi,

I have a small app called myapp with a link a other page jsp:


when I deploy this app with jboss locally this work sucessfully


but when this app is in a server (ie: htpp://server/myapp/index.jsp) this link in a jsp doesn´t work, but when i change it for


works fine again.
I don't understant what is the reason, but I need that this application to be independent of the server...

Welcome to the Ranch Hector.

The context root in servlet and JSP can be retrieved by


Everything after that is relative to this context root. So ideally you shouldn't need to include the "/" in front of other.jsp in order to trigger the link.

When you do testing, the effect on a server or locally should be the same.

Because Java code should never be used in a JSP, the proper means to get the context path in a JSP is ${pageContext.request.contextPath}

You could also create URLs in JSPs with the JSTL <c:url> tag, which prepends the context path correctly.

See the JspFaq for more info.
