Hi I as trying a sample application as in HFJS book chapter 3.
I have a form.html which says action="SelectBeer.do"

and the web.xml mapping is like:
<servlet>

<servlet-name>CH3 Beer</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.example.web.SelectBeer<servlet-class>

</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>CH3 Beer</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/SelectBeer.do</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>


NOw this works fine when my form is submitted.
But I want to have a virtual URL in the DD as well as the URL in addressbar.I tried to change the DD and action with "/virtual/mydir/SelectBeer.do" at both the places ie. form.html and DD url-pattern,but it did not work.It gave 404 error.
How can I change the URl pattern to anything virtual and still call the s
ame servlet?

/virtual/mydir/ directories do not exist in my webapp structure,its just made up and appears in the URL pattern only.

You can call servlet with any virtual name by simply changing your url pattern value in DD as *.do
