    I created a build file for one of these applications which I build made up of simple jsps etc within the Struts framework. I build the file sucessfully using Ant no problems, but for some reason, I can only access the main page of the application. On clicking the search link, I get an error HTTP 404. I really really need someone’s help to figure this one out !!!

    I made sure that the index.jsp and search.jsp files are outside of the “WEB-INF” directory so that they are directly accessible to the user. However, from the index.jsp file, there is a link to the “search.jsp” file. That link results in the error. For some reason, it does not appear to be seeing the second jsp page. I must be missing something

    Here is the build file which I constructed :

    <project name="MiniHR" basedir="." default="compile">
        <!-- ANT tasks -->
        <target name="init">
            <property name="app.name" value="MiniHR"/>

    What is the URL (in your browser) to your index.jsp page, and what is the URL in your browser when you click the link to search?
