Subject Re: How to change(override) application path
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2007 18:29:01 GMT
Hi

I've had all sorts of problems understanding how relative links are
resolved so I found this solution somewhere and it works well for me

All my pages import a header file (header.jsp) in header.jsp I have this

<%
String basePath = request.getScheme()+"://"+request.getServerName()+"/";
%>

<html>
  <head>
    <base href="<%=basePath%>">
     ....

Now I no longer have any problems with links not working, ever.

I have my app installed as the default app. If you are using a non
ROOT context you can append request.getContextPath() like this


<%
String basePath =
request.getScheme()+"://"+request.getServerName()+"/"+request.getContextPath()+"/";
%>

It works for me

i will re set exmp: TOMCAT.Application.Path="http://www.mydomain.com/" everytime after recreation
of real url and my images and other files will be displayed correctly.
