Redirect URL Prefix

I have a JSP with whole bunch of links (HREFs). Now instead of changing all the links is it possible for me to redirect all the links with a prefix.

In other words,
Suppose example.jsp has a is link to AnotherPage.asp
But AnotherPage.asp is moved to a different folder. So obviously the URL changed. Now is it possible for to me to somehow forward all URLs with a specific prefix in my JSP.

I would really appreciate some help.

If, in web.xml, you create servlet entries for each of your JSPs, (using jsp-file elements) you will be able to create servlet-mapping entries with any url-pattern you like.

If you're not familiar with servlet-entries, there is a link to the servlet spec in my signature. Look at SRV 13.4.

Front controllers are brialliant for such puposes as they (usually) abstract the references. See this article for an explanation.
