Given that a servlet is correctly declared with the tag

<servlet>
<servlet-name>HelloWorld</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.examulator.HelloWorld</servlet-class>
</servlet>


Which of the following represent the correct syntax for mapping a servlet url to a servlet name

a)
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>HelloWorld</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>hello</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

b)
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>HelloWorld</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>*.java</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

c)
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>HelloWorld</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

d)
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>HelloWorld</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/com.examulator.HelloWorld</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

answer is ( c , d )
Why d is also true ?

Hi,
b,c,d are correct.
Option 'd' is correct because whatever you give you should add '/'(represents context root I guess) before it in ''url-pattern' tag. If you try to access like 'contextRoot/com.examulator.HelloWorld' it works.

But in the case of operator '*' I think you can give as it is with out adding any '/'. Here try give like 'contextRoot/anything.java' it works.

Isn't it the case that for url-patterns, there are 3 types:

1)exact--/aDir/anotherDir/aResource.do

2)directory--/aDir/anotherDir/*

and

3)extension--*.do

So *.java works, 'hello' would be exact but no '/' so it fails,
and so on.
