Can I redirect/forward from a non existing url?

  Asked By: Aysel    Date: Mar 04    Category: Java    Views: 942
  

I would like to type have user friendly urls

http://localhost:8840/app/about

(note than "about" does not exist neither as a directory or file.)

and then being redirected to

http://localhost:8840/app/index.jsp

Is there any filter / servlet which does that?

in web.xml you may declare your jsp file  as servlet  and assign a pattern to its url  mapping:


<servlet>
<servlet-name>myIndex</servlet-name>
<jsp-file>/app/index.jsp</jsp-file>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>myIndex</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/app/about</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
