Make Servlet as the welcome page

I have servlet 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 pattern in 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 :-)
