How to capture query strings as follows?
http://www.mysite.com/MyApp/SomeServlet/chutan
http://www.mysite.com/MyApp/SomeServlet is mapped to a servlet, and the servlet will display stuffs related to the user "chutan"
and
http://www.mysite.com/MyApp/SomeServlet/chutan?view=1
How to allow the servlet to get those parameters?

The reason I'd like to do this is that users will be able to remember the url to their personalized page easier without the ? and & .

You can set different alias for your servlets in the web.xml configuration file( in the WEB-INF directory of your app).

hi,
use getPathInfo() and getQueryString() both methods to get what u want.
e.g. if u have,
http://myserver.com/servlet/myservlet/myname?view=1&choice=2
then u can do,
request.getPathInfo that returns "/myname" and
request.getQueryString returns view=1&choice=2
read Servlet API for more info about these methods...
or u can use request.getParameter as well to get view or choice parameters directly...
