Web.xml Deployment Descriptor

Web.xml mapping servlet names improve web app's flexibility and security..The deployment descriptor (DD), provides a "declarative" mechanism for customizing your web applications without touching source code!

Tomcat Directory Structure


import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import java.io.*;

public class Login extends HttpServlet{

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response)throws IOException{

PrintWriter out=response.getWriter();
java.util.Date tody=new java.util.Date();
out.println("out put html tags");


<servlet>Maps internal name to fully-qualified class name.

<servlet-mapping>Maps internal name to public URL name.


<servlet-mapping> which servlet should i invoke for this requested URL?

<web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee web-app_2_4.xsd" version="2.4">






signin.do file mapping to Login.class. So the client or users to get to the servlet.. but it's a made-up name that is NOT the name of the actual servlet class.
