Your URLs if absolute would need to contain the web application name
unless your web appliation was the ROOT web application (the only one
that runs at /).  

Therefore if you webapp was called apple and was in webapps/apple, your
image refs would need to be

/apple/images/

You can use relative image URLs in your CSS OK "BUT" if you are linking
to a CSS sheet, again youd need the href to point to
/apple/css/mycss.css. 

Other than that, you can define your CSS styles in the <head> of your
pages and then use relative refs to your images, e.e ../images/

Hi all;

playing around with tomcat in order to both learn using the package and
create a small web site there, I'm currently left with a problem which,
though probably being small (and not really related to tomcat), keeps
bugging me:

I'm trying to do the visual stuff of my jsp using a css style file,
which is good, so far. Within the css file, I'm using images for
backgrounds etc like that:


background: #fff url(/images/bg_header_blau.jpg) no-repeat top left;


My problem, right now, is where to put the images within the web
application so they're actually found when displaying the page.
Initially, I created a folder "images" within my web application and
referred to the images using url(images/...) with relative path names,
which didn't work. Also tried to place the images folder inside
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps and then using absolute image urls (/image/...),
which also didn't work.

So, where's the magic? I've always been through some tougher moments
with css and images while dynamically generating content, but right now
I feel really helpless about that. Can someone enlighten me?

Cheers and thanks,
Kris
