I am running Eclipse Indigo with the Sysdeo plugin against Tomcat. My servlet is running fine but I'd like to specify the URL submitted to to Tomcat to launch the servlet. Currently, when I press <F11> something (Eclipse? Sysdeo?) launches Tomcat and starts my servlet with http://localhost/MainClassName/run/*; I can see this in the address bar of the native browser. However, what I need to launch with is (append the "?p=123")" http://localhost/MainClassName/run?p=123.

As I understand it, a <servlet-mapping> entry in web.xml tells Tomcat what servlet to launch when it receives a particular URL (like http://localhost/MainClassName/run/*) but that isn't quite what I need. I need to have a different URL be used (http://localhost/MainClassName/run?p=123).

I don't know if this is controlled by a setting in Eclipse or in Sysdeo (or something else). Can someone tell me how to do this (or suggest another place to post this question)?

Thank you.
