Hi Friends,
I have a problem in using regular expression in web.xml.
Actually i am using a Servlet Filter but one page create problem with it and i want to bypass this page. Can i use regular expression in web.xml to prevent the servlet filter to get invoked for particular that page and invoked for all rest of the pages.

please help me out, if anyone of you has done it before and have any idea regarding this. i welcome any new suggestion to overcome this problem.

Thanks
Abhishek

One approach is to use Resin 3.0 to implement regular expression in web.xml.
Take a look at path-mapping using resin

Experts may throw more light on this.

Abhishek,

Isn't this a continuation of this thread?

Please refrain from double-posting, it is one of the few rules at the JavaRanch.

No problem, I had pointed you to the Jakarata ORO page. They have an excellent demo page here.

Are you looking for code examples? You should be able to get some from the site and the Javadoc. If there is a specific regex that you need help with, let us know. We might be able to help.
