multiple URL mapping for one web app

First of all, this is my first post so hello everyone.
My question is regarding url mapping...
I currently have a web application called "reo" which is accessible from http://localhost:8080/reo
I would like to now have sub urls...:
http://localhost:8080/reo/admin
and
http://localhost:8080/reo/requestdisposal
However, "admin" and "requestdisposals" are still part of the reo app! What I mean is that I only have ONE web.xml and ONE struts-config.xml to work with. My folder structure is the following:
fsrpda (JBuilder project name)
-src (src code for ALL of reo including admin and requestdisposal )
-reo
---admin (all jsp for the admin component)
---requestdisposal (all jsps for the requestdisposal component)
---WEB-INF (for the whole reo app)
I am using JBuilder9 (with Tomcat 4.1) and Struts 1.0.
What can I change in the struts-config.xml and web.xml so that it knows that when I type in "http://localhost:8080/reo/admin"; I have to go to , for instance, splash.do but if I go to "http://localhost:8080/reo/requestdisposal"; , then I need to point to welcome_rd.jsp
I don't want a redirect because after the page load, I would like the URL to remain http://localhost:8080/reo/admin/splash.do and http://localhost:8080/reo/requestdisposal/welcome_rd.jsp
Is this possible without creating 2 web applications, with each their servlet?

I hope my question is clear..and that it hasn't been answered 1000 times already.
Thanks in advance!

you could specify welcome_rd.jsp as a welcome file in web.xml.
Why do you want to execute a struts form as soon a user comes to a url? Do you want to get information about the request without input from the user? an action like this is probably better handled with a filter servlet.

OK, I can see how my question was unclear....take 2:
I would like to now have sub urls...:
http://localhost:8080/reo/admin
and
http://localhost:8080/reo/requestdisposal
with only one web app (only one web.xml and one struts-config.xml) called reo
What can I change in the struts-config.xml and web.xml so that it can handle these sub-domains bust still be in the same servlet? ex: I type in "http://localhost:8080/reo/admin"; I have to go to , for instance, wecome_admin.jsp but if I go to "http://localhost:8080/reo/requestdisposal"; , then I need to point to welcome_rd.jsp
I don't want a redirect because after the page load, I would like the URL to remain http://localhost:8080/reo/admin/xxx and http://localhost:8080/reo/requestdisposal/xxx, on all subsequent pages.
Is this possible without creating 2 web applications, with each their servlet?

Im not sure how your would do that.
The only thing i can think with struts is you make forms in one domain (admin say) map to urls that match *.ad (eg removeUser.ad) and forms in the other domain map to urls that match *.rd (eg requestADispatch.rd).
Would that help?
