But this is within the servlet/jsp page, not the config file. unless I
misunderstand you. there is no response until a page has been settled on for
processing right? This means to redirect a request I would have to have a
phantom page that tomcat decided to serv that then redirected to the real
page. One of the top features of redirection is to have the user ask for one
thing, and not need it to exist physically on the file system.

Of course I may be entirely missing something here :)

Actually I expect that I am missing something which is why I have asked
tomcat users :)
