Hi ,
I am using Struts Framework for my web development.

Following is directory structure inside my webroot folder:-
-Econify
     +src
     -webroot
          +JSP
          +images
          +css
          +js
          +META-INF
          +WEB-INF
     
Now In my JSP page when I want to displpay image, I have to use there something like following:-
<img src="<%=request.getContextPath()%>/images/menutopcorn.gif" height="20" width="13">
but, I dont want to use each time <%=request.getContextPath()%> to retieve base path. Also I dont want to use this jsp scriptlet at all in my JSP.
Is there any other solution for above ?
like I should just type just following
<img src="/images/menutopcorn.gif" height="20" width="13">
& I should get the proper output.

How should I do that?

Thanx in advance.

assuming your JSP file is loacated in (webroot/jsp) directory and your image file is in (webroot/images) directory

Here is your solution
<img src="../images/menutopcorn.gif" height="20" width="13">

Explanation:

 Your file is in Webroot/JSP now you have to come to one level up for getting access to images directory which is at the same level as JSP direcotry. For this put '../' after that you can access all directories under the webroot directory (images,css,js etc.,)

hey,
I already know this method in HTML. but I want something that should be unique in all files like something we can do using <html:base /> tag. So that whatever is the location of file, I have to only write path as
<img src="/images/menutopcorn.gif" height="20" width="13">
How this should be done?

thanx.

If you dont want to use scriptlet then try to use <bean:write> or <bean:message> tag.
