Make Servlet as the welcome page

MyServlet and I need to invoke that as the welcome page, like the index.jsp.
I mean when I go the link
, the servlet MyServlet should be invloked.
I know this can be done by calling the servlet from the welcome page index.jsp, which I cannot do due to some constraints.
Is there any way to make a servlet as the welcome page? Please help.

You can use the servlet url
in welcome file list
<welcome-file-list> <welcome-file> /url-mapping-of-servlet </welcome-file> </welcome-file-list>

Or there is the URL Rewrite Filter available here,
I haven't got my head around this myself yet, but I have been recommended the above for the same problem you are asking about :-)
I agree. Here's the link:
