make  "www.a.com/12345"  contain this code

----------------------
<%@ taglib uri="/WEB-INF/c.tld" prefix="c"%>
<c:redirect url="www.a.com/index.jsp?id=12345?"/>
---------------------
and make sure you have c.tld in /web-inf.

what you are basically doing is when user types  www.a.com/12345, you are using the JSTL code <c:redirect..>
to redirect the user to www.a.com/index.jsp?id=12345?

thanks jaggernat, but may be there is some misunderstanding:

12345 is actually an id, which can not be hardcoded, meaning the user might type

www.a.com/24680 and is actually calling www.a.com/index.jsp?id=24680

If you have experience in wordpress (although it's in php), they seems had implement similar logic, either access an archive blog by www.a.com/archive.php?id=whatever or www.a.com/archive/whatever

of course they may do it in other way round (i.e. forward archive.php to whatever, which is much easier.

To to ensure if we can do this in jsp or not.

Regards,

try mapping the path / to a servlet or jsp

<servlet>
  <servlet-name>loginservlet</servlet-name>
  <servlet-class>/loginservlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
  <servlet-name>loginservlet</servlet-name>
  <url-pattern>/</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

and in th loginservlet get the requested url using request.getRequestURL() that gives you the requested url from where you can get the *id* using substring.
and then dispatch the request using RequestDispatcher.forward("/index.jsp?id"+id)

this is just an idea that i got, i am not sure whether this works, but you can do something like this.
just try it and let me know.
