What is the .do extension on some web sites? I'm guessing that it is some other interpreter like .asp, .aspx, ... Does anyone know for sure?

In J2EE-compliant servers, there is a loose, non-standard, usage of Struts which uses a .do extension that directs requests to a central servlet that does the traffic diversion to correct resources (C in MVC model).

In reality you will never find a .do file anywhere. This is just a hidden implementation of a servlet. Whenever the URL contains a .do extension, the control is passed to the servlet that you have configured to match with your .do extension in web.xml.
