adding external resources css javascript images etc in jsp  using -'java,css,jsp,jstl,el'

I added an external CSS stylesheet to my project and placed in the WEB-CONTENTS folder of my project in Eclipse. When I deployed it on the Tomcat, the stylesheet was not applied. When I debugged it in Chrome and opened it, it gave me 404 file not found error. Why is that and how to fix it?

Here is the code:

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
<%@taglib prefix="c" uri="" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>joined now </title>

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

<div>this is at the top</div>
<c:import url="header.jsp" />
<c:import url="navigationBar.jsp" />  
<c:import url="leftpane.jsp" />
<c:import url="mainContent.jsp" />
<c:import url="rightpane.jsp" />
<c:import url="footer.jsp" />
