I create an TestServlet and add the following code into web.xml
I expected both (/TestServlet and /test/Testxxx) of them can map to TestServlet but only /TestServlet work properly.
Could anyone tell me why /test/Testxxx cannot (but /test/Test* work)?
Thanks in advance!! Jack [ June 21, 2004: Message edited by: Jack Lau ]

Let's see what the spec says:
SRV.11.2 Specification of Mappings In theWeb application deployment descriptor, the following syntax is used to define mappings: � A string beginning with a �/� character and ending with a �/*� suffix is used for path mapping. � A string beginning with a �*.� prefix is used as an extension mapping. � A string containing only the �/� character indicates the "default" servlet of the application. In this case the servlet path is the request URI minus the context path and the path info is null. � All other strings are used for exact matches only.
