I have a url mapping defined in my web.xml for my servlet servlet1.

I also use a context path of "myap".

So, the url used from the browser looks like:

I am trying to get this mapping to work such that the user can just type in and it would work.

So, I added the following to the above defined url mappings in web.xml:

Now works from the browser but doesn't any more.
