    Default Unable to access js file from jsp.

    Hi Champs,

    I am new to web development and working on a web based application. I am trying to access js file from jsp but getting 404 error.
    The project structure is
    HTML Code:
     Application
           |_ _ _ javasource
    
           |_ _ _ WebContent
                           |_ _ _ js
                                     |_ _ _ home.js
                           |_ _ _ META-INF
                           |_ _ _ WEB-INF                                                 
                                        |_ _ _ jsp
                                                  |_ _ _ home.jsp
                                        |_ _ _ lib
                                        |_ _ _ web.xml
                                        |_ _ _ struts-config.xml
    context path : /context/test

    I am trying to access home.js from home.jsp
    using :
    <script type="text/javascript" src="${contextPath}/js/home.js"></script>

    URL : http://localhost:8080/context/test/

    Please let me know how do we access js file from jsp?

    Thanks,
    Chinnu

    move the folder js inside WEB-INF and accordingly change the path of js in the jsp...better to give relative path with reference to the container

    Dear chinnu , do one thing.Please move your "js" folder , inside WEB-INF folder.It is the standard method to build a project directory.
    :-)
    Then use this link to access your ".js" file.

    ../js/home.js

    (Nb: The ../ means to go to the parent directory relative to where you actually is.This will move you to WEB-INF folder.Then we are entering to the "js" folder and we are calling the "home.js" file)
    Hope it will help !!
