I have a fundamental question about web applications.

The question is:
How does a URL like www.abc.com:8080/app1/app1servlet gets mapped to web application "app1".
Following is what happens

1. Put "www.abc.com:8080/app1/app1servlet" in browser address bar and hit go
2. Browser sends a HTTP request as below
GET /app1/app1servlet HTTP/1.1
Question: how does the servlet container determine that the request has to routed to application "app1". Does the container always assumes that first part of URL is application name(here app1)

Yes, the first part of the URL identifies the context path of the application to which the request will be targeted.
