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/admin-menu.do .. 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 admin-menu.do files in multiple places in the app, that should do it.
