In a simple web application,i wrote one controller servet and one filter and congigure those in web.xml. My doubt is that
"both filter and controller servlet acts as interceptor of requests.if i configure the controller servlet and filter for the same request Url,whic one get executed first".

I believe it is the filter which will have greater precedence than the Controller servlet.

Before the request reaches the servlet associated to that url, it goes through all the filters chain.
I agree. Here's the link:
