Static Pages with no model or controller

I have a web app that has a few pages that are static HTML pages that do not have a model. I want these pages to only be viewed after the client has logged in, but I don't want to have to create controllers for each of them when they do not have models and will not change. I was thinking about creating one controller for all the static pages, but I don't know if this is the best approach or even if it is possible.
Any advice would be appreciated.

You could change the HTML files to JSP files and then check for a session-scoped variable before allowing access.   Or you could write a Filter that could prevent access to the HTML files.   Which way do you want to go ?

I ended up taking your first approach where I converted the html pages to jsp. I have a spring servlet that maps the request to a httpInterceptor where it makes sure that the session variable has been set. If the check passes, the servlet then maps to one controller (handeling all static pages) that parses the uri for the view name, which it then displays.
Thanks for your help,
