Hi, I'm pretty new at all of this, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm confused about the way I can get Tomcat to recognize my error.jsp. The webapp is in
<jakarta-root>/webapps/test
I'm using a Controller.java file to send the user to various pages when they submit.
Inside <jakarta-root>/webapps/test/ I have an error.jsp
In my Controller.java, I do res.sendRedirect("/error.jsp");
but it doesn't see <jakarta-root>/webapps/test/error.jsp. I have to do res.sendRedirect("/test/error.jsp");
This is strange to me because I can do .
RequestDispatcher rd = sc.getRequestDispatcher("/buy.jsp");
rd.forward(req, res);
no problem without having to put the name of my webapp (i.e., ("/test/buy.jsp").
Is there some kind of configuration I need to do in Tomcat?
Also (not to drive you all crazy, but this is related), I have a header.html file which I include in all the jsps. I use <jsp:include page="/header.html" flush="true" />
to get to it, and Tomcat loads it just fine, but the pictures inside the header.html file (which are listed as <img src="/NetResults2.gif", for example), don't load. All pictures load fine when I upload it to my web hosting service, just not when I'm running Tomcat locally.
Thanks for any help,
Travis
