Subject AW: Servlet mapping problem
Date Wed, 29 Sep 2004 09:43:33 GMT

> I wrote a servlet with mapping as / . But when it is forwarded to
subdirectory it is coming to same servlet and executing in a loop.

You cannot map a single url. Tomcat only maps prefixes. So, you cannot map
"/" with tomcat. (Resin can, but this is another story.)
Here is a workaround:
Map "/root" as a servlet and define "root" as world welcome-file (see docs).
Depending on the tomcat version in use, you need to create a empty file
named "root".
