Thank you very much; it looks you are answering my two questions. It appears the solution in both case is to map the paths with renderResponse.ecodeURL and renderRequest.getContextPath. I am trying that, but unfortunately in thisw code:

I am getting the error "cannot find symbol" for each of renderResponse, encodeURL, renderRequest and getContextPath.
I don{t know what I am missing.

For some reason <portlet:defineObjects /> is not working. I can get renderResponse and renderRequest from the request, but I don{t know what keys to use.

I am using <%@ taglib uri="http://java.sun.com/portlet" prefix="portlet"%> but still doesn´t work.
 
It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
