Java Web Application specify entry point


I have some Java Web Application and now it's starting from index.jsp page. I have my own class with following code:

import java.io.*; import javax.servlet.*; import javax.servlet.http.*; public class EntryPointClass extends HttpServlet { @Override public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException, ServletException { .... } }

My MANIFEST.MF file looks like:

Manifest-Version: 1.0 Main-class: asap.vito.mobileapi.EntryPointClass

But anyway, after deleting index.jsp I have a 404 error.

What should I change to start my app directly from my java class?

Thank you.


First of all its a servlet not simple java class... You should give its mapping into the web.xml and then u can access it directly

give this type of mapping for your servlet

<welcome-file-list> <welcome-file>entryPointClass </welcome-file> </welcome-file-list> <servlet> <servlet-name>EntryPointClass </servlet-name>//servlet name here <servlet-class>examples.EntryPointClass </servlet-class> // packagename.servletclassname </servlet> <servlet-mapping> <servlet-name>EntryPointClass </servlet-name>// servletname <url-pattern>/entryPointClass </url-pattern> // url parttern by which you will access your servlet </servlet-mapping>

To access this from server use projectname/urlpattern


Change/Add Welcome File Tag Element in Web.xml Configuration or Use Servlet Mapping.
