Load problem from request redirect/forwards

I'm using version 3.5.15 in my JSP's inside the Struts framework.

My problem is that when I'm coming from a request redirect/forward the menu is not loading. The menu loads perfectly if I ask for the JSP specifically, for example,

The file menutest.jsp as below:

Code: Select all

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript src="menu/menu_array.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>
<SCRIPT language=JavaScript src="menu/mmenu.js" type=text/javascript></SCRIPT>

When the menutest.jsp is a target for a request redirect/forward it seems like the JavaScript is not loaded or not executed. When checking the code I find that the resulting HTML is exactly the same!

Any advice?

I think it's the way you do your redirect and the way you do it... Could we see an example of your redirect!?

Found solution

Hi there,

Thanks for the reply.

I discovered that because the forward/redirects are executed in a different context then the JSPs my relative paths didn't work. I just replaced them with absolute URLs and voila!

One strange thing is that there was no JavaScript error (normally "Object expected...") telling me that the .js files were not found.
