Hey guys,

Can someone tell me why my gif images are not displaying on any of my Struts forwarding JSP pages? If the pages are invoking directly by typing the url into a browser the images are displaying. However, if Sruts forwards the pages, the images DO NOT display.

Here's my jsp page:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-html.tld" prefix="html"%>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-bean.tld" prefix="bean"%>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-logic.tld" prefix="logic"%>
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-nested.tld" prefix="nested"%>
<%@ include file="../common/Header.jsp" %>

<html:html>
<body>
<html:form action="/submitPackages" name="PackageForm" type="org.apache.struts.action.DynaActionForm">
<table align="center" width="960" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr><td>SERVICES</td></tr>
<tr><td>ADVERTISE YOUR BUSINESS</td></tr>
<tr><td> </td></tr>
<tr>
<td><html:img page="../images/beauti.gif" width="78" height="74" /></td>
<td valign="top">Private Business </td>
<td><html:img page="../images/happyWomen.gif" width="78" height="74" /></td>
<td valign="top">Professional Business </td>
</tr>
</table>

......

</body>
<%@ include file="../common/footer.jsp" %>
</html:html>


PLS...heLP!!!

"ramesh",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Thanks!

Nina, using page-relative addressing (such as starting a URL with ..) usually will not work in a web app.

Rather, you should be using server-relative addressing that starts with the web app's context path.

Bear's advice is good for writing regular JSPs that don't use a framwork. However, Struts tags use a different set of rules. When you use the page attribute of the html:img tag, it automatically prepends the web app's context path that Bear was talking about. You just need to start your URIs with a simple "/" and then give the path relative to the context path. If you want to give a URL that does not prepend the web context path, use the src attribute of the tag instead.
