Hi Ranchers,

I have a URL with a '?' symbol in it, which I wanted to map to different url using sendRedirect in a servlet. When I give the url with '?' symbol in url-pattern tag of a servlet-mapping it doesn't take it. Does the symbol has a different meaning like as in regex? Please let me know how to solve this problem.

Thanks in Advance,

Cheers,
Chandu

you can't use regex in url-pattern!

only wildcard id "*" at the least position or at the first - for extension mapping.

mfg,

You could try
/? or /?/ or /?*.jsp

But since ? does not have any meaning attached to it, I fail to understand why do you wish to use "?" for url-pattern?
