Hey Kevin,

I think I know what is going on here.

When you are doing "<template:put name='header' content='/welcome.html'
direct='true'/>" you are using direct=true which directly outputs the string
"/welcome.html" as the file to be used for the header. This would mean that
any contextPath that you have for your server is not being applied and as
such no file can be found as it is looking for it in the root of your web

I think that what you should be using is something like the following which
will include the file rather than just outputting the string. "<template:put
name='header' content='/welcome.html'/>"

The same would apply for the content.

Hopefully this solves your problem. I usually only create separate files if
they are going to be used over multiple pages, such as navigation, page
headers etc. You could also do something like this to save having
superfluous files lying around.

<template:put name='content'>

Subject: template

Hi, All:

I have a template jsp called template.jsp. The content of template.jsp is:

<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-template.tld" prefix="template" %>

<title><template:get name='title'/></title>

<frameset  rows="20%,*">

  <FRAME src="<template:get name='header' flush='true'/>">
  <FRAME src="<template:get name='content' flush='true'/>">


I have another jsp file called  index.jsp which uses the template.jsp. The
content of index.jsp is:

<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/struts-template.tld" prefix="template" %>

<template:insert template='/template.jsp'>

  <template:put name='title' content='Templates' direct='true'/>
  <template:put name='header' content='/welcome.html' direct='true'/>
  <template:put name='content' content='/tour.html' direct='true' />

Whenever I tried to run it in tomcat, I got
"Apache Tomcat/4.0.4 - HTTP Status 404 - /welcome.html

type Status report

message /Welcome.html

description The requested resource (/Welcome.html) is not available.

Apache Tomcat/4.0.4 - HTTP Status 404 - /tour.html"

type Status report

message /tour.html

description The requested resource (/tour.html) is not available.

I got the above messages in different frame.I don't know what cause the
problem. Some one knows how to fix it?

Thank you very much
