Hello,

I would like to ask for some advice. I have some servlets at different URLs which are deprecated now. I would like to redirect all of them to common URL.
Can somebody please tell me how can I do that? Is it possible?

Thanks in advance.

Peter

Can't you re-map them in the web.xml file?

The problem is that there are four servlets are in different directory for legacy reasons. My new servlet is in another one under webapps directory.
For example: I would like to map localhost:8080/oldwebtool/someservlet to localhost:8080/ultimatetool/niceservlet

Do you know if it is possible to map them?

If oldwebtool and newwebtool are both handled by the same web app (one that can listen on "/"), you can use its web-xml for remapping. But if they're in different web apps, remapping won't work.
In that case, you'd have to do it with Apache, e.g. the mod_rewrite module can do this.
