Subject Re: How do I make my servlet the welcome page
Date Wed, 01 Sep 2004 19:37:43 GMT
The problem that I found with doing it this way is that I had a 
security-constraint on my application and it wasn't being enforced when I 
tried to do that. So, I created an index page that redirects to the 
application.
