Subject Re: URL rewriting and cookies
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2001 11:43:23 GMT
I still have not got any answers for the problem described below.

Is there some problems with struts custom img-tag?

Why it is generating tags like this?

<img src="/images/blue.gif;jsessionid=0001CEAAQCTISJFXCZWNZLC2WNA">

Where does this ';' came from and why there it is not '?' instead?

Do I have to add ? on every picture if I like to use URL rewriting instead
of cookies?
