Hello everybody....my question may seems to pretty ordinary to many of you....but as a beginner I am unable to find a solution.....so please help me.

I am using netbeans 7.2. I have created a project, the project hierarchy looks like the following:

FolderDemo
|
|__build
|__dist
|__nbproject
|__src
|__web
|__Folder1
| |__abc.jsp
|
|__Folder2
| |__xyz.jsp
|
|__WEB-INF


Now, my problem relates to abc.jsp and xyz.jsp files. What I am trying to do is that I am trying to access abc.jsp from xyz.jsp.

Here is the code for xyz.jsp:

Now If I right click on xyz.jsp and select run from the pop up menu, it works.....I mean xyz.jsp is coming and when i click on the hyperlink abc.jsp is also coming.
But If I run the project in normal way by clicking on Run button then when i click on the hyperlink on xyz.jsp, abc.jsp is not coming.....instead its giving Http 404 error message.
I don't know what to do? please help me.

Hello Sujoy Mukherjee,

The project structure looks okay to me , so does the JSP and the href tag. It should work fine. Can you please tell me what link do you use to access the site on the browser ? Must be something similar to localhost:8080/FolderDemo/ ?

Hello Saif,
Thanks for replying.
yes you are absolutely right.....when i am running the project the browser shows http://localhost:8080/FolderDemo/.
Then when i click on the hyperlink, it is showing

HTTP Status 404 -

type Status report

message

descriptionThe requested resource () is not available.

while the browser shows http://localhost:8080/Folder1/abc.jsp as the link.

regards,
Sujoy

It seems that the URL is not appending context name.

Try changing the URL to this



Now the URL formed should be like this

http://localhost:8080/FolderDemo/Folder1/abc.jsp
