It's the same as mapping servlets.
Declare the servlet. Eexcept in this case, replace the servlet-class element with the jsp-file element.

Map the servlet.

Yes, it goes in web.xml and you can add as many mappings (aliases) for each servlet as you want.

NOTE: Depending on the spec version of the container you're using, the order of elements in web.xml may or may not matter. Consult the spec for the proper order.
