I have a web app .  name :  PaymentServices.war


I want to redirect to   url http://localhost:8080/PaymentServices/index.action  as soon as browser's welcome page is hit .



I am confused which one to  write in welcome.jsp  . This is default welcome page.



<%
  response.sendRedirect("index.action?lang=en");
%>


OR


<%
  response.sendRedirect("/index.action?lang=en");
%>

OR

<%
  response.sendRedirect("PaymentServices/index.action?lang=en");
%>

OR

<%
  response.sendRedirect("/PaymentServices/index.action?lang=en");
%>

OR

 anything else ?

The first and the last in your list will work.
>anything else ?  
If you want to go
>  as soon as browser's welcome page is hit .
then why not change your web..xml to have
 <welcome-file-list>
        <welcome-file>index.action?lang=en</welcome-file>
 </welcome-file-list> 

Open in new window

Now I am confused though.. you say
as soon as browser's welcome page is hit
What do you mean by "browsers" welcome page? Did you actually mean "your website" welcome page?

ie. What address are you entering, that you wish to then redirect to your index.action page...

http://localhost:8080/
 ...or...
http://localhost:8080/PaymentServices/

If the second option is what you are after, then as stated above the first or last options you listed can be used in the welcome.jsp file that is part of your .war file.

If you want the first option, then you can add the welcome.jsp file (that contains the redirect as per the last option you listed) to the web containers ROOT. This is probably dependant on the actual container but if you are using Tomcat you can put this file in <Tomcat>/webapps/ROOT (if it doesn't work as welcome.jsp try calling it index.jsp)
