Menu Forwards?

The index.jsp of the application contains two lines:

What is the meaning of this redirect forward? Is the browser asked to submit a new request to the path with logical name "welcome"?
I then searched the config.xml file,

The path of the logical name "welcome" is "do/Menu" (note it is upper case Menu). However, there is no Menu ActionServlet in the application.
There is menu.jsp (note it is lower case menu) in the application. Does this application display menu.jsp when it is first launched? Apparently, it does. This menu.jsp is in the ApplicationContext/article/content folder. I am confused - does /do/Menu locate the menu.jsp
1. in the /article/content folder?
2. regardless upper or lower cases?

in struts-config.xml, look for <action path="/do/Menu" ...>
This technique is an example of "Use Global Forwards for all entry points to application" found in Ted Husted's Struts Catalog

Well, now that I look at your configuration, maybe it's not an example of the Catalog technique after all. Anyway, what your configuration does is it gives different logical names for your menu page.
