Directly executing a servlet
Posted on 2003-11-20
Hi, can anyone tell me why does the "servlet" path come in the URL when directly exceuting a servlet. For eg:- <ipaddress>/servlet/<package>/<servlet-name> . What i need to know is that since we do not have "servlet" directory, how does this word appear in the URL???
I have tried this in both Tomcat and WebSphere, without having any entry for the servlet in the web.xml deployment descriptor.
