Its an amazing solution for me that i was looking for something like this exactly... But originally it would be better if i could send and set this from java response like response.BasePath=global value; I looked at response functions its not directly possible. Or is it?

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 Rgds Duncan ____________________________________________________________________________________ Fussy?
