I'm constructing an admin tool on top of my read-only pages. I put the admin .xhtml pages into a separate sub folder in the root dir:
This is a pretty basic structure (on the server).
Now the question: how do you best handle paths to resources from various
directories in the hierarchy, here the root dir and the admin dir?
Example footer footer.xhtml:
The footer is included from /admin/home.xhtml and /team-list.xhtml, so from the root dir files the images work and from the admin files they don't. For whatever reason prefixing with a slash
neither works in the root nor the admin dir (image not found). Same with CSS of course.
I know JSF 2 comes with extensions concerning resources like the above by using library="...", but how is it done in JSF 1.2? Is it really necessary to somehow prefix all paths with a custom value depending on who is the "caller" (client)? I have the feeling I am missing something very fundamental about JSF/Facelets here, but I've had no luck finding out what it is.
Can anybody clear this up for me? (The biggest question to me still is why paths like "/images/..." don't work........)
