http://localhost/cms/css/table.css"  means the folder structure is
 - css
but i assume from ur link that ur structure is
  - css

so for it to refer u need to place the css folder under the webappfolder and no tthe web-infi

sajuks is right...  The browser will try and fetch your css files, but the browser cannot access the web-inf folder.  JSP can (as it is run on the server), but the outside world cannot.

So as sajuks says, you need to move the CSS folder up a level.
