servlet question

Hi folks,
I am not sure whether I should put this question here. But I could not find any other place. I am writing
a java servlets using JDK 1.1.5 and JSDK 1.0.1. Instead of using servlet enabled Web server, I am using
srun.exe ( standalone servlet -runner that comes with JSDK1.0.1). In the servlet, I am generating html
dynamically. In the html, I am loading a image(.gif) file. The problem is the browser cannot find the gif
file though it is in the same directory from where I am running srun. I can access servlet from the directory,
but not gif. How can I do it?? I tried giving absolute path like http://maha-pc:8080/servlet/title.gif in the html.
Still it did not work. The documentation does not say anything. Has anybody tried it ??

Thanx
Maha

This is an HTTP question, not a java question really.

Only executable objects (serialized objects or class files) may be served by srun.  You need to run an HTTPD server.  I suspect that if you telneted to your box with
      telnet localhost 80

and tried to access the document manually with
      GET /servlet/title.gif HTTP/1.0

It would definately fail to respond with the appropriate gif. I don't know what platform you are running on but you might be able to run a simple webserver of any type, along with srun on another port #, in order to fully accomplish what you are trying to do.
