Mapping Requests to Servlets August 16, 2005

Posted by Coolguy in Servlets/Jsp.
  • Upon receipt of a client request, the Web container determines the Web application to which to forward it.
  • Path mapping procedure
  • The container will try to find an exact match of the path of the request to the path of the servlet. A successful match selects the servlet.
  • The container will recursively try to match the longest path-prefix.
  • This is done by stepping down the path tree a directory at a time, using the ’’ character as a path separator.
