Suppose an incoming request path does not map to any of the url patterns ,

so will it mapped to the default servlet or to the welcome file ?

Assume that the request path is the path to a directory.

vivek,
what you mean by the default sevlet here.one that matches for the url pattern '/*' ?.if that is what you mean then obviously this sevlet will get invoke.

default server in the servlet with url-pattern as "/" . It is used for matching after exact matches -> path matches -> extension matches have been tried

I did some hands on and found out that the default servlet takes precedence over welcome files .

Thus if a default servlet is configured , welcome files will never be invoked.
