Start with a Servlet in Weblogic 6.x

We have an installation of BEA Weblogic and we have developped an application. The problem is that we want to set a servlet as home page, but we couldn�t find the way to do it.
We have already tried to make a .jsp as home page and redirect it to a servlet, but this solution is not valid for us, because the home page could be acceded from HTTP(Web) as well as from WAP (mobile phone), and WAP does not understand .jsp.
Summary: we want the application to be accesible from HTTP and WAP. Our servlet is the one who can know and discriminate when a request is made. That's why we need the servlet to be the first called before other thing. Can anybody help us?
Thanks.

Cris,
Making a servlet the entry point to a wep-app is quite easy.
In your web.xml have something like -
<servlet>
<servlet-name>mySite</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>servlets.mySite</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>mySite</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/mySite/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
Am I missing anything?
Cheers,
Dan
