there is some path exist on my website say .. http://localhost:8080/project/admin/ .. i want that when user enter this url a default page should open which is one th e following path .. http://localhost:8080/project/admin/ .. what web.xml entry should i have to make?

my all pages under admin folder are secured using TOMCAT BASIC authentication, will adding a default page in that way will break the security?

One more thing, I have already defined the index.jsp page for welcome file which is for all users.

The difference between <b>failure</b> and <b>success</b> is often being <b>right</b> and being <b>exactly right</b>.

If you define a new welcome-file-list in the web.xml for your project application, it will replace the list in the default web.xml. Unless you have files in multiple places in the app, that should do it.
