I would agree.  Tomcat has no knowledge that SSL is in use and returns the
appropriate URL.

Hmm...  generate all URLs by hand with a custom tag?


...and I don't think you'd be able to use a RequestDispatcher to forward

I'm not too experienced with all of this, but I figured I'd try and help out
nonetheless ;)
