Hello,

I use <c:import url="whatever"/>  to include some external html in my JSP page.  It all works great except that the image URLS do not show up since they are realtive to teh external site.   Any solutions to work around this?

Thanks

are the images say on a webserver if so wouldn't you need to specify say the ip and port in order for them to work properly?

Example:
<img src="http://192.168.188.00:8080/images/something.jpg"/>

Even if you did  parse the content and place the host into each img tag, I dont think it would work because  of security constraints. See

Maybe there could be a way using  the     java.net.HttpURLConnection class. But I don't know how. Maybe an expert will step in here.
All I can think of is to  use HTML frames.

you can't use relative url to access another host, you need to use absolute

Thanks for your replies but I think the question has been lost somewhere....

I have a bunch of html that includes several urls.  I need to replace the relative path with an absolute path.   Is there a regular expression or something that I could  use to do this.

Cheers
