Dear Milt, perhaps your theory is right, but take a look at this:
I've renamed my file worksheet.html to worksheet.jsp and I've got the jsp
extension redirected to Tomcat.
but it doesn't work at all :(

any idea?

my welcome looks like this:

<welcome-file-list>
     <welcome-file>worksheet.jsp</welcome-file>
</welcome-file-list>

and my mod_jk.conf looks like this:

#
# The following line mounts all JSP files and the /servlet/ uri to tomcat
#
JkMount /worksheet/servlet/* ajp12
JkMount /worksheet/*.jsp ajp12

regards.

Martin
