Default Tomcat URL mapping question

Hi guys,

I'm fairly new to Tomcat and I have a very simple problem.

I have a .jsp file under my "webapp/jsp/admin/index.jsp". This jsp references a .css file using:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../common/css/global.css" />

I put the "global.css" in a folder under "webapp/jsp/common/css". I am experienced with Apache running PHP and this usually works automatically but it doesn't work under Tomcat. I know that it has something to do with modifying the URL mappings but I'm not really sure how or which file to edit. I think it's the "web.xml" but I don't really know the syntax of how to do it.

Can anyone give me some advice please? Thanks!

Check the <base> tag given in the jsp page. If it is given the relative path is resolved using the value given in this base tag.
