I am not sure to understand your problem right, but:

There _will_ be a request for each and every static component (i.e.
image, css, js file, whatever) to be loaded from the server - but
indeed, you shouldn't have your controller taking care of that.

How are you referring to images and js from within your code? You should
be sure to use absolute URLS (i.e. "/images/logo.png" instead of
"images/logo.png"), otherwise you might end up with your server
searching for the content in a place where it's not supposed to be found
 (i.e. "/<servlet-context>/controller/images/logo.png"). If you keep
that in mind, chances are you won't have to do much configuration work
in your web.xml but simply ensure that folders containing static things
are somewhere out of the way of your servlet mappings.

Hope this helps, good luck to you!
