Now we got a situation where HTML page (whose request is being serve by IIS) has a form and action of the form is a Servlet (whose request need to be server by WebLogic).
But since IIS-to-Weblogic request forward mechanism forward only requests of .jsp pages to WebLogic and Servlet doesn�t have any extension, we mapped Servlet as .jsp page.

1) But you can refer to the given name so you need nt to write full path for the file.
2) If you want your jsp to be treated as servlet, you need to define the pattern for that.
ok how we provide security by keeping alias naming to the servlet
anyway the servlet is in the private folder so no one can access it then what is the use of aliasing the servlet name and how do we benifit by providing security?
