Typically my page name and parameter list looks like this...

Without parameters obviously it looks like this...

The index.jsp page is registered as the default page. If I wanted to access the site with no parameters I could use this...

if I wanted to use with parameters... could I??r would I have to have the index.jsp on the end of it.
