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.

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
