it's appending the context onto the URLs. This is a function of the 
taglib that you are using to output the URL. Presumably html:link? If 
so, which attribute are you using for it?

I suspect you are using 'page'. If you use href then it should just 
output the URL 'as is'. Or you could use 'action', and make the link an 
action mapping forward, e.g. action="".
