Someone correct if I am wrong or if there is a better solution.

What you can do is have an index.jsp. When u give that url the index.jsp should be called. In this index.jsp forward the request to login.do.

Hope it helps.

If this is really what you want, add logon.do to the list of welcome files in web.xml
