Is having two wildcards allowed? Furthermore, can you start a url-pattern with a wildcard? (I'm not answering for you.)

Neither. See p586 HFS. Either
1 Directory match- /dir/* (always start with / end with *)
2 Extension match *.doc (always start with a * then .extension)
3 Exact match

More precisly, the Spec says :
SRV.11.2 Specification of Mappings
In the web application deployment descriptor, the following syntax is used to define mappings:
� A string beginning with a �/� character and ending with a �/*� postfix is used
for path mapping.
� A string beginning with a �*.� prefix is used as an extension mapping.
� A string containing only the �/� character indicates the "default" servlet of the application. In this case the servlet path is the request URI minus the context path and the path info is null.
� All other strings are used for exact matches only.

This type of Question was in the real SCWCD exam . And you have to select one out of these two ? I don't know what SUN is expecting.....

I am 100% sure about this question .

I am not giving you the full question . this is a part of it . But you have to select one of this as correct .

Lavjeet, please be aware that if you haven taken the real exam you have also signed a confidentiality agreement with Sun. The ranch has a policy about Real Questions.

Thank you.

I have not posted the complete question . This is just a part of it and I
think to ask query regarding this question I have to give the options .

I think the site is to solve problems of Java developers which they face . So I have to post the query ?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
