Subject RE: Repeated "load-on-startup" niggle
Date Fri, 23 Jan 2004 15:09:43 GMT
Is it simpler in this case to have an index.html file sitting at '/' and
all it does is a meta refresh to the '/hal' context?
 
That way, once you're at /hal, you'll stay at /hal, and won't worry
about request parameters, etc.
