You want the welcome file to be a JSP? Should it not be going to the page controller for that page rather than the JSP itself?

In "http://localhost:8080/Balance/" you use uppercase "B" in "Balance", but you don't in the next URL: "http://localhost:8080/balance/LoginServlet"

I assume you want to add "<welcome-file>LoginServlet</welcome-file>" in the welcome-file-list?

"You want the welcome file to be a JSP? Should it not be going to the page controller for that page rather than the JSP itself? "

yeah i want it to be a jsp file.

i have place my <welcome-file> tag inside <welcome-file-list>
it is trowing 404 error for http://localhost:8080/Balance and for http://localhost:8080/Balance/LoginServlet it is working fine.

Hmmm, going to a JSP file is not a good pattern to follow, but I suspect (assuming that the JSP is in the context root) that you need a leading slash.

And watch your casing. I'd advise to name all JSP files and url patterns with all lowercase as is the convention.

The jsp is not in the servletcontext path so it was not comming.
i was just trying to learn servlets so i have kept jsp as a welcome page.


Thanks everyone for replying.
