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.
Originally posted by vijay dadhwal: yes, you can provide as many as mapping you want for a servlet mapping can be done in single mapping block like this
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. [ December 16, 2008: Message edited by: Ben Souther ]
