I am working with a program that has a web interface. Some links within this interface has .do files in their names. I have been looking all over the webapp files and webserver files but no luck finding these files. The app is written in jsp, please explain to me how I can access these files because I need to know how the app handles one of the parameters sent.

    open the struts-config.xl file and there you can find the mapping URL <> Servlet  in the <action> element.


    In the above example the url is

    Hello illion20,
    There is nothing like .do files, the .do is just a URL pattern, and normally this pattern is used in struts applications, the same can be used in any of the MVC architecture applications, where a Cental controller handles the requestas and for wards the request to the right request processing pages, classes etc.
