Subject Re: Forward problems servlet to JSP in 3.2
Date Mon, 11 Dec 2000 14:10:04 GMT
You should use servlet mapping. If you have http://myhost/myjsp.jsp the 
servlet that call your jsp should be mapped as http://myhost/myservlet . In 
this way all the relative links are still good.
An additional hint...... if you map your servlet with an extension, for 
instance myservlet.Svlt and use a configuration such as
JkMount /tf/*.jsp ajp13
JkMount /tf/*.Svlt ajp13

all the request not related to tomcat are served by Apache!!!!
