I'm wondering how to put data on the index page. I'm using hibernate. Servlet should take data from database and dispatch it to the index.jsp with request.
If I would have a static index page (without any data from database) user would type www.example.com or www.example.com/index.jsp . Index. jsp is in DD in welcome-file-list and everything should work fine right? If I want to have a dynamic data in my index.jsp I have to call servlet first, but when user makes request for www.example.com, he makes request for index.jsp, servlet is not called so it won't get and dispatch data to the index.jsp.
I have one solution for this problem, but I'm not sure is it correct. Do I have to put "MyServlet.do" in my welcome-file-list instead of index.jsp ? I think there must be other solution. I saw many jsp/servlet based sites which have dynamic data in theirs index.jsp. Of course they could map the servlet as "index.jsp" but I don't belive in this really.
