I'm using Struts 2 on bea weblogic 10. I can't seem to get the welcome-file to work with a .do action. (Note: we've mapped our struts actions to *.do). Welcome-file works if I have index.html specified. Below is a copy of my web.xml. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

<web-app id="WebApp_9" version="2.4" xmlns=""
