Hi All,

I have one strange issue, JSP cannot Identify the JS, CSS file path when URL pattern is /*. Let me explain in detail.

Irrespective of relative path my application should have to call Home.jsp. So for that I have specified URL pattern as /*. This logic is working fine.
The application is calling JSP page but It cannot call the JS file. In the below Sample code I try to print two alert massages. But I am able to see only one alert message "welcome". Not able to see the alert message in Hi.js file. I tried with all possible scenarios by changing path but its not working. CAN ANY BODY PLEASE HELP ME IN THIS.

One more thing I have to mention here when I change the URL pattern to some /xyz its working fine. Please Help me in this issue.

My Directory Structure.
