Is it necessary that an entry be made in web.xml for every servlet ? I believe that an entry in web.xml is required only if the Servlet needs initilization parameters? Apart from this is there any situation which demands the need for an entry in web.xml??
Ben, why not go ahead help him pull the trigger now that you've given him the gun to put to his head?
Seriously, though, it is highly advisable NOT to enable the "invoker" servlet. Alternatively, you could look at XDoclet if you don't like writing web.xml files. XDoclet will generate them for you based on javadoc tags in your code...
