I want to specify 2 url patterns for that same servlet, but not able to do so.
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>HtmlFilter</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/html/*</url-pattern>
<url-pattern>/HtmlFilter</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

But, it is taking request only for /HtmlFilter, but not for /html/*.
Do i need to give two servlet-mapping and two declarations for servlet using <servlet>.
Please tell.

You'll need to declare two servlet-mapping tags i.e.

Also, why is your servlet named "filter" but it is not a Filter?

yes, you can provide as many as mapping you want for a servlet
mapping can be done in single mapping block like this

I specified many url-patterns, but it took only one.When i wrote multiple servlet-mappings ,then it worked. Seems like we can not write multiple url-pattern in same servlet-mapping

This is true, but only in Servlet Spec 2.5 and up.
Look at SRV.S.19 (Changes from Servlet 2.4):


SRV.19.0.3 Multiple Occurrences of Servlet Mappings
Previous versions of the servlet schema allows only a single url-pattern or servlet
name per servlet mapping. For servlets mapped to multiple URLs this results in
needless repetition of whole mapping clauses.
The deployment descriptor servlet-mappingType was updated to:





So..
If you're writing for containers that don't support the 2.5 spec, you'll need to create multiple servlet-mapping entries.
