I have a scenario where i am trying to access a servlet that is cotained as part of the custom webapplication (deployed using wMTomcat) from a DSP which is present in the same package. If i invoke a servlet from a JSP everything seems to work fine, however nothing seems to happen if i invoke the same servlet from the DSP. Since it is in same package i dont want to use the entire URL i.e. http://hostname:port/web/packageName/servletName . If i access the servlet directly as servletName from a JSP, it works fine.
