Just wondering if someone could resolve a query I have about the rules applied for resolving conflicts. In the Servlets 3.0 spec on Page 74 g. iv. it says
"<welcome-file> declarations are additive"
The term additive is mentioned a few times, what does it mean in this context?

An example would explain it better - if web.xml contains index1.html as welcome-file and a web-fragment contains index2.html, the servlet container would look for index1.html and if not found, it would look for index2.html. Thus, they are additive in this case.
