I know this has been replied a thousand times already but still i could not manage to load my css in my Spring Project .
I have put my css file in
/src/main/resources/css

Following is my user-servlet.xml



I have configured Dispatcher Servlet in my web.xml

I am posting part of my Controller


I have loaded css in my jsp as following,


Please help me figure out where am i doing wrong ?
Some thread post regarding this problem says to put , in user-servlet.xml , But this mapping has some conflicts with my DispatcherServlet in web.xml and makes all my servlet unreachable and gives 404 .

Welcome to the Ranch!

Have a look at the following example from the Spring Pet Clinic. Note you can user curl too you don't need to use spring:url

The web.xml
https://github.com/SpringSource/spring-petclinic/blob/master/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/web.xml


https://github.com/SpringSource/spring-petclinic/blob/master/src/main/resources/spring/mvc-core-config.xml


https://github.com/SpringSource/spring-petclinic/blob/master/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/jsp/fragments/headTag.jsp

Try it.

if your css folder is outside web-inf
<context-root>/resources/css

then declare like <mvc:resources mapping="/css/**" location="/resources/css/" />

if your css folder is under web-inf like below example
WEB-INF/resources/css

then declare like <mvc:resources mapping="/css/**" location="/WEB-INF/resources/css/" />

2. Put my css files in src/main/webapp/resources
3. To use css in jsp use


Thanks to everyone .
