If you want an index to be served by a servlet, then I suggest you use a filter
to do the redirection. See the WelcomeFilter.java for an example.
Not working with struts actions
If you are trying to use a struts action as a welcome file, you will need to set
redirectWelcome in Default Servelt to
true. The default is for
redirectWelcome to be
false, which means the page will be forwarded to, and the action never called.
