Hi,
Following is the second rule about the mapping requests to servlets on page 85 of Servlet Spec 2.4.
I am not able to understand the rule. If some one can explain in a bit simpler english please (with example will be great).
" 2. The container will recursively try to match the longest path-prefix. This is done
by stepping down the path tree a directory at a time, using the �/� character as
a path separator. The longest match determines the servlet selected."
THank you
Nitin

You can refer to the book: SCWCD Exam Study Kit, page 74 to page 77.
