i am usinf faces and have been able to do what you're trying to do with this
the imgs folder and the pic are present in my war file into the root path (i mean not under some other folder)
Nice to hear from your side.
I tried that, doesn't seems working for me actually.
but with local machine you mean the machine on which JBossPortal is running right? because for me it works in this scenario
that's correct...JbossPortal is running on my local m/c only
Anyway, I have done it in another way , adding html file with images thru CMS :-)
Thanks Buddy for your immediate response!
