Hi everyone, I am working on a small website using JSP/Struts on my local computer. The index page is index.jsp with a jsp tag to forward to call a servlet. Now I need to upload the whole site to a shared Tomcat host. It requires that the start page of my site must have index.html name. Does anyone know how I can implement this? How to automatically call a servelt in a HTML file? Thanks in advance. CY

Here is my index.jsp file (just one line)

<jsp:forward page="/"/>

Do you not have access to the deployment descriptor? If so, you can change the welcome file to index.jsp.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
