Struts2 Action at Root

Hi all,
I would like to perform a Struts2 Action when the root of my Webapplication is called. I use Tomcat5 and Struts2. To make it clear, here is what I want:

- The user goes to www.myApp.org
- a Struts2 ActionClass is called: reads cookie from user and sets session attribute (i.e. login automatically)
- Struts2 ActionMapping redirects to index.jsp (which reads session attributes)

At present, what happens is:

- The user goes to www.myApp.org
- Tomcat redirects to the welcome file: index.jsp
- No action is performed.

So, is there an action name for "root" or something?

Thanks in advance!
