CSS Question

Spring MVC CSS and JS not loading

Including floder structure

enter image description hereI am developing a web application in Spring MVC. I have issues loading CSS and JS files in JSP.

I googled for hours and tried all options, but not succeeded.
Here is what i did

  1. tried to load as normal web app giving relative path

  2. tried including mvc:resources

  3. tried loading through Resource Servlet even then nothing worked.

All three were tried separately
I am wondering what had i missed.

traditional link for #1

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.min.css">

No changes done in mvc-config or web.xml

App Config for #2

<mvc:resources mapping="/resources/**" location="/resources/"/>

Web XML for #3

<servlet-name>Resource Servlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-name>Resource Servlet</servlet-name>

enter image description here
