This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
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?
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. [ November 25, 2005: Message edited by: Ulf Dittmer ]
