Hi,
I am trying to include a '.js' file in my jsp. I am using its relative path. First time when the jsp is loaded the file is available. But the second time when the jsp is accessed, the relative path is not accessible. Can I use absolute path instead? Is there a way in javascript to get the absolute path of a file on server?

In JSP,  
<%
   String requestURL = request.getRequestURL().toString();
   String requestURI = request.getRequestURI();
   String serverURL = requestURL.substring(0,requestURL.indexOf(request.getRequestURI()));
%>
<%=serverURL%>

You could just use something like
  <script type='text/javascript' src='/yourFile.js'></script>  
Note the leading slash.
