Let me first explain the problem. Lets say I have and i clicked some link in this page navigates to but in the browser, I wanted to display only and I wanted to hide the jsp page name in the address bar.

To do this you need to setup the JSP page URL under configuration file.

Use the virtual-directory-mapping element to specify document roots other than the default document root of the Web application for certain kinds of requests, such as image requests. All images for a set of Web applications can be stored in a single location, and need not be copied to the document root of each Web application that uses them. For an incoming request, if a virtual directory has been specified servlet container will search for the requested resource first in the virtual directory and then in the Web application's original document root. This defines the precedence if the same document exists in both places.

I tried the way you mentioned. But I do not have a .jar file instead  I have directed it to the folder where my files are located.

Is there any other way that I can do this?

My weblogic.xml file is configured this way. Please let me know if I have done some wrong any where.


I do not want to display the full url. e.g http://localhost:7001/test/index.jsp I wanted to display only http://localhost:7001/test/ and hide the jsp name.

I tried all possible combinations, e.g removing <url-pattern>/</url-pattern> and adding only <url-pattern>*.jsp</url-pattern> but nothing is working.

Any helps would be great.

Make index.jsp your welcome file for that web application in its web.xml file:


Don't forget to redeploy the application after doing this.

I have a website that's similar, and when I type http://domainName/webappName/  the index.jsp does not appear (unless you type it in explicitly, of course)
