I am implementing a Front Controller pattern for a web application at my company. All requests submitted to jsp pages must be mapped to a controlling servlet named "Controller". In other words, I would like to map *.jsp to Controller in order for the servlet to handle the request and determine which action to take. I'm not sure how to route all jsp requests to the servlet. Should I use the <filter-mapping> element in web.xml? If so, can someone give an example of how to set up the filter? thanks guys...

THANKS FOR NOTHING! I figured it out on my own.
Answer:
To map requests to a servlet using a pattern, use the following definition in web.xml:

The definition above indicates to the web container that any request for a jsp page made from the context root "/app1/" will be redirected to the CountServlet.
