Hello friends..

iam curious, is there any way to hide .jsp extension?
example i want to access an Url http://localhost:8080/MyApplication/mypage.jsp ..
is it possible to go that URL only by write http://localhost:8080/MyApplication/mypage (Without .jsp extension)?..
(its look like servlet)..

Thanks in advance..

Sorry, perhaps my english language isn't too good.. Prepare for SCJP 6, Please God help me.. ☼

One way I can think of, is to register a jsp in web.xml, like you do for a servlet and specify 'mypage' in the <url-pattern>

I recommend you read this article. It explains how web apps should be structured in a way so that JSPs are never the primary targets of client accesses to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:
