I use Spring for getting access to my zul files in WEB-INF directory.

And all worked until I used template on my pages.

Now when forward from index.zul using <?forward uri = "console/clients"?> exception occure:

org.zkoss.zk.ui.UiException: org.springframework.web.util.NestedServletException: Request processing failed; nested exception is org.zkoss.zk.ui.UiException: Page not found: /template.zul


<zk><?forward uri = "console/clients"?></zk>


    <include hflex="1" src="include-menu.zul"/>

<div self="@{insert(pageContent)}"/>

Actually if I add template.zul to index using <?init class="org.zkoss.zk.ui.util.Composition" arg0="/WEB-INF/zul/template.zul/>" than I have exception

org.zkoss.zk.ui.UiException: Page not found: /include-menu.zul

and arg0="/WEB-INF/zul/include-menu.zul" in index.zul does not help with this exception


<div apply="org.zkoss.bind.BindComposer" viewModel="@id('vm') @init('dynamicdemoadmin.viewmodel.MenuModel')">
    <menubar id="mainMenu" orient="horizontal">
        <menuitem label="profiles" ...


<?init class="org.zkoss.zk.ui.util.Composition" arg0="template.zul"?>
<div self="@{define(pageContent)}">
    <div apply="org.zkoss.bind.BindComposer"...

I can't really follow your descriptions, somehow it sounds like a very complicated way to achieve something simple. Distracting from the actual problem (relative vs absolute paths and how/where they are resolved)

1) do you really need an index.zul file just to do a forward? If you are using spring (MVC?) you can just configure entry points directly. No need to go through ZK servlet -> forwarding to spring dispatcher servlet -> forwarding again to a zul page ... I am sure there's a simpler more direct way.

2) Can you reproduce this without involving Spring? (Might help to reproduce this on our side to test the scenario)

3) also please provide some information where all your files are located in you webapplication. Right now it's hard to visualize your case.
