I deployed an ear in weblogic
in the application.xml i did not specify any value for the <context-root> as shown below
when i tried to refer to jsp
I get a 404 error.
Is it possible to specify no value for context root and still refer the page as given above.
because if i need to give some value to teh context root i need to change my entire application.
Experts please helppppppppp

Thanks in advance,

Off the top of my head I'm not sure whether you can do this or not.
However, it is possible to write a web application so that you don't have to explicitly refer to the context path. If you do need to refer to it then take a look at some of the methods on the HttpServletRequest object.
Also, take a look at the HTML base tag, a nice implementation of which is provided with Struts.
Sorry that didn't answer your question!

If you deploy your webapp as a "default web application" then you don't need the context prefix on the URLs.
Search for "default web application" on the weblogic docs search page to learn more.
I agree. Here's the link:
