<servlet>
<servlet-name>servlet1</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.whatever.myServlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>servlet1</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/my/test/firstPage</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

Here we are mapping a url-pattern to the class in the <servlet-name> element, ie. on typing http://....../my/test/firstPage we get the myServletClass invoked. but to account for the following.(/my/test/*)
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>servlet1</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/my/test/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
Thanx in Advance.

Sorry, your question was not clear.
But, if you want to know what this mapping means, then it is simply
going to invoke the servlet1 if any url-pattern (such as http://whatever/
my/test/'whatever')is requested.

One common example for it is, the Action Controller Servlet (Which is made to be invoked for all the requset matching a particular pattern, commonly all the requests for a particular web application...but not necessarily..)

I think she wanted to know which rule takes precedence. The order is

1) EXACT-MATCH
2) DIRECTORY-MATCH
3) EXTENSION-MATCH
