Using different extension than JSP

Hello!

I saw some JSP sites uses .do extension for their files...

I want to ask how can I use .xxx files instead of .jsp files? I want to define this for NetScape Enterprise Server 6.1 (in windows and solaris - both)

How this is possible?

Thanks from now!

yeah thats right.
you need to redeploy your web application once you change the web.xml file

here is the sample web.xml file

<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN" "http://java.sun.com/dtd/web-app_2_3.dtd">
<web-app>
  <display-name>Example</display-name>
  <servlet>
    <servlet-name>admin</servlet-name>
    <jsp-file>/jsp/admin/admin.jsp</jsp-file>
  </servlet>
  <servlet-mapping>
    <servlet-name>admin</servlet-name>
    <url-pattern>/admin.do</url-pattern>
  </servlet-mapping>

  <servlet>
    <servlet-name>sample</servlet-name>
    <jsp-file>/jsp/sample/sample.jsp</jsp-file>
  </servlet>
  <servlet-mapping>
    <servlet-name>sample</servlet-name>
    <url-pattern>/sample.do</url-pattern>
  </servlet-mapping>

</web-app>

you can to specify that in your web.xml under <url-pattern> tag

here is an example

  <servlet>
    <servlet-name>admin</servlet-name>
    <jsp-file>/jsp/admin/admin.jsp</jsp-file>
  </servlet>
  <servlet-mapping>
    <servlet-name>admin</servlet-name>
    <url-pattern>/admin.do</url-pattern>
  </servlet-mapping>

Thanks alot for your answer! It produces a 500 Internal server error!
Can you paste here a complete web-xml file?

Where I should put that and why 500 internal error? (I think it should be in /WEB-INF/web.xml)
