I have got the below code in web.xml for the webapp "mapping":

Also have "page.jsp" in the context root for the webapp.
But I am not able to access "page.jsp" with "http://localhost:8080/mapping".
Any help on this?

Hi Cyril,

Did you check the structure of your war-file? Just check what is deployed.

Thanks a lot for the response Frits. Actually when I restarted tomcat, everything was all set!
But I have a different problem here..
This time I have got the below code in web.xml for the webapp "mapping":

and I just have "testPage.jsp" in the context root for the webapp.
was thinking that if I use the request "http://localhost:8080/mapping/test", tomcat would append "page.jsp".
The resulting request "http://localhost:8080/mapping/test/page.jsp"; is mapped to "/testPage.jsp" in the DD.
So I think I could access "testPage.jsp" that way.

But it isn't working. I get a 404 error.

Can you tell me if I am missing something? The "test" directory is non-existent. Is that what is wrong? I did restart tomcat this time

Hi Cyril,

Yes, that is why it is not working.

According to the Servlet specs:

Welcome Files
The purpose of this mechanism is to allow the deployer to specify an ordered list of partial URIs for the container to use for appending to URIs when there is a
request for a URI that corresponds to a directory entry in the WAR not mapped to a Web component. This kind of request is known as a valid partial request.


You will need the directory "test" to get it working.

If you create a "test" directory with a "page.jsp" and you use the URI: http://localhost:8080/mapping/test, the welcome-file entry will be added, giving an URI of http://localhost:8080/mapping/test/page.jsp which will map to a Web-component (Servlet "page") and direct you to the testPage.jsp.

Regards,
Frits
