Hide .jsp Names from the URL

Hide .jsp Names from the URL

There are instances when .jsp names need to be hidden from the URL. This can be done using various design techniques. But if your application is small and simle enough that it doesn’t even require a servlet, you can hide a real URL by defining a mapping in the web.xml file.Here is a snippet from the web.xml file:

    admin.jsp    /admin.jsp    admin.jsp    /company.myco.admin

Now the url can point to /company.myco.admin, which would actually take the user to /admin.jsp.
