If you are linking from inside a jsp page and using jsp spec 1.2+ / 
servlet spec 2.4+, you can do this:

<script type="text/javascript" 
src="${request.contextPath}/intPages/myScripts.js"><!-- --></script>

The comment is there if you are using xml valid jsp to prevent tomcat 
from collapsing the script tag and breaking it in IE.

The EL expression ${request.contextPath} fetches the context path live 
so you don't have to hard code.  Otherwise this is a server relative 
path and the client will automagically add the 
http://[servername]:[port] part.

outside of the web-inf.  Do I also have to fully unc path to the *.js files, like src=localhost:8080/context/intPages/myScripts.js
