Essentially, yes. But only if you have a web application which is mapped to "root" scope for the server. In most cases a web aplication is deployed to a URL more like:
http://someserver:8080/myapp
So the following would be mapped:
  • http://someserver:8080/myapp/hello.pdf
  • http://someserver:8080/myapp/somewhere/hello.pdf


  • and the following wouldn't
  • http://someserver:8080/hello.pdf
  • http://someserver:8080/myapp2/hello.pdf
  • http://someserver:8080/myapp/hello_pdf
  • http://someserver:8080/myapp/pdf/hello
