I'm sure Obama will fix that :-)
Sorry Gregor. And many thanks.

 That allows the webapp to be deployed under any name you want without changing the web.xml

Just testing my understanding.
Not relative to ../webapp but relative to (in this case) .../webapps/atom
hence I should use the url path relative to http://localhost:8080/atom
which, as you say is /*

So that my code would pick up http://localhost:8080/atom/AlmostAnything

Thanks. That makes sense.... and helps (I think)
When I deploy (upload) to my web visible server, the web.xml file will
remain the same!

I'm going to write this up. I'll post to this list and would appreciate
any feedback.

I want to start looking at restricting access now, but I'll start a
new thread for that!

Many thanks gents.
