A servlet can be called with any name. You just have to add the url mapping for the servlet in the web.xml properly. The second is only a convention not another "method".

By default, the invoker servlet is disabled in modern versions of Tomcat.
This means that the second method won't work unless you uncomment the entries for it in TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml.
