(Subject Was: NewB/Default Servlet:Can't find .gif)

On second thoughts.. with regard to this (my previous post) it may have been smarter to simply
ask what is the best way to generate a welcome page for a domain using a servlet...?


> NEWBIE:  I want to generate the welcome page for my domain so I mapped a test servlet
to "/" in the web.xml for my context.
> PROBLEM:  A test.gif image is not rendered by the servlet - as it appears the path is
not found.
> OBSERVED:  If I map the servlet instead to "/intro" then the test.gif is rendered ok.
> TRIED:  Using various path combinations"/test.gif", "test.gif" etc - no result.
> NOTE:  I've read some postings advising locating files should be done as in InputStream
[getResourceAsStream()].  Is it applicable in this case when all I want is a simple 
> 	out.println( "<img src=\"/test.gif ... etc )?
> Your advice greatly appreciated
