I have a web application which has the following directory structure:

I have my web.xml as follows:

What changes should I do to web.xml so that -

1) after logging into the application, index.jsp is displayed.
2) when i click on any link on index.jsp, it finds the servlet and shows up the next right jsp page with the styles.

index.jsp is -

I have pasted only important pieces of index.jsp.

Right now, what happens is -

1)i login, it does not find index.jsp and it shows up directory structure on the browser as jsp and styles.
2) i click on jsp, it shows up index.jsp, but does not find the stylesheet.
3) in index.jsp, i click on add mcd user, it finds add_mcd_user.jsp but no stylesheet.

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4<br /> <br />Thanks in advance!<br />Jayashree.
