Hi, As mentioned earlier that your question is wrong copied. Change the options to <servlet-name> <url-pattern>/Recipes/HopsList.do</url-pattern> and <url-pattern>/Recipes/Modify/ModRecipes.do</url-pattern>.
They rule is the url mentioned is mapped to the <filter-mapping> a) Group the matching <url-pattern> in the sequence they appear in the DD. b) Group the matching <servlet-name> in the sequence they appear in the DD.
This rule will determine the filter sequence.
