Index.jsp not loading on weblogic - works on Tomcat

I have a struts app with the homepage set to be index.jsp in the web.xml file.

Do to budget constraints we run an apche/weblogic environment, our host runs solaris/weblogic.

I have no issues on this in our testing environemt, however, when I deploy the war on the beta environment - which runs weblogic - the index.jsp file is not used as the homepage, but rather the system looks for index.html.

In the idex,jsp I have a struts forward that takes a user to the correct Action path, and now I have to use a hacky index.html.

I am not in charge of the weblogic server and I do not have access to the config files. To make matters worse, the webmaster claims there has to be something wrong with my app, but I know there isn't.

Is there a system setting on weblogic or in the solaris web server that would override the web.xml setting and have the app look for index.html?

You don't mention which weblogic version or show your configuration, but here's a link to the WebLogic Server 8.1 documentation on welcome files, Configuring Welcome Pages.
