Java Servlet Deployment
Hey im just in the process of deploying an example java servlet and can't figure out the relevance of the <welcome-file-list> tag from the following code:
<web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee" version="2.4">
Any ideas guys?
A Welcome File List is an ordered list of documents which will be looked for when a user requests a directory without specifying a filename. This list often contains files like index.html.
Welcome files are to a Java web container as index files are to a web server. They are a list of potential file names that will be matched as defaults when a url resolves to a directory name. They often include index.jsp, index.html, default.htm, etc.
Ah, thats a great help! Thanks a lot for clearing that up for me
