I'm just learning JSP and I have a simple problem, how can I create a link.
This is part of a left menu that is suppose to link to a different page.
<A HREF="<%= PMPage.jsp %>" style="text-decoration:none" class="A">PARK</a>

Do you mean that you want the link to go to PMPage.jsp ?  Then it should be a normal url:

<A HREF="PMPage.jsp" style="text-decoration:none" class="A">PARK</a>

I had it initially that way, but doesn't work. If I try Park/PMPage.jsp
Here's how my folder looks like:
TESTWEB
   WebContent
     images
     Park
        PMpage.jsp
     Web-INF
        LeftMenu.jsp
        main.jsp

Then it looks as if your URL is wrong.

where does your Web app start?  If it's the WebContent directory, then your url should be
/Park/PMpage.jsp -- notice that you're spelling it wrong, too, if the latest post is correct.  If the file is PMpage.jsp, then PMPage.jsp will not exist.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I tried that too. When I add /Park/PMpage.jsp the link becomes Park/Park/PMPage.jsp instead to just one Park it becomes 2.

I tried one that worked, but it should not be done this way. I moved the page under WEB-INF and mixed it together with the other pages, it seems like it cannot find the Park folder and I'm not sure how the structure works.

Okay -- the good news is that you now have a URL you can use to reference your JSP pages.

Now it sounds as if you need to figure out what your Web site structure is so that you can make URLs that refer to other files (not in WEB-INF).

Are you able to retrieve the files in your/Park/images directory?  If so, what do those URLs look like?

If href="/Park/PMPage.jsp" turns into "/Park/Park/PMPage.jsp" then there could be several things going on.

1) /Park is the location of your web app under http://mydomain.com, so that all of your webapp is http://mydomain.com/Park/something

2) You have a base directory declared in the HTML of your page, and that base directory is /Park.

Other things might cause what you're seeing, too , but these are the ones that occur to me.

If /Park is prefixed to all of your URLs, then did you try
href="/PMPage.jsp"
