Additional Info:

The same set of files when stored inside a folder called 'web' works fine.
BardobraveCommented:
Well.... it seems a path problem.

Your /StudentProfile_1.jsp file seems to be trying to load a Redirection.jsp file that is not placed in the path you specify. Probably your folder structure on development and production environments is different? Check those folder structures and fix your file routes. You'll probably face more issues like this.
CWS (haripriya)Author Commented:
Redirection.jsp file exists in that path. Anyone else?

Your path seems odd.  
Did you try without the leading "/"
 ../Redirection.jsp  
If that doesn't work, then show us your file structure and  your code.
BardobraveCommented:
If inside a folder "web" it works and outside of it it doesn't seems pretty obvious that there is something wrong on your paths or on your folder structure, but we cannot guess it.
CWS (haripriya)Author Commented:
These two line are the one which gives error.

<%@ include file="../Redirection.jsp" %>
<%@ include file="../connection.jsp" %>

Even if I give the direct absolute path like "http://www.website.com/Redirection.jsp" it gives the same error.

The path are ok. I checked many times. The whole website works fine if it is inside a 'web' folder. All are relative paths only. So, if I upload the files to 'public_html' it should work. But gives error. This is not my  project. I am only hosting it in the server. Additional info is that the project was built using NetBeans and I am hositng it in Tomcat server. I have no idea why NetBeans create a folder called 'web' and creates all the project files.

After some research in the internet I found that context.xml and web.xml files are important. Anyone know what am I supposed to do in that xml files so that the website works?

If the JSPs that you are trying to include are in the same folder as StudentProfile.jsp , then try  
<%@ include file="Redirection.jsp" %>
<%@ include file="connection.jsp" %>

If they are in the root folder of your web app, then try
<%@ include file="/Redirection.jsp" %>
<%@ include file="/connection.jsp" %>  

If those don't work, then show us the file structure on your server.
