Subject Re: Calling a servlet from jsp
Date Fri, 13 Jan 2006 21:40:58 GMT
Assuming that you are using tomcat as your web container I think you can
achieve the desired results by looking in var/catalina/conf/web.xml and
uncommenting the servlet declaration and servlet mapping elements that
enable the InvokerServlet.  Then restart your server and you should be able
to post to servlets from your JSPs without having to explicitly declare
those servlets in your application's web.xml.

However, before you enable the InvokerServlet please be advised that
enabling this feature is (for some) a security concern because it makes any
servlet in your applications' classpaths visible to HTTP requests.  It's
convenient for development purposes but probably not advisable for a
production or external system.

Best wishes,
