A welcome file is provided when a website or web application is accessed using only the domain name (http://www.website.com/).
A welcome file is provided when the web application is accessed using only the domain name, or with any other URL that ends with a slash.

Example 2: a file in /info/help.htm (not sure why you would want to do this, but it is possible!)
Example 2: a JSP file at /info/help.jsp (the path info/help.jsp becomes relative to whichever folder is accessed, so this is not recommended for use as the only welcome-file in the list)
At line 21 changed 1 line.
Example 3: if you are using a servlet, and the <[url-pattern|web.xml.URLPattern]> for the servlet is /servlet/MyServlet, you would specify servlet/MyServlet, without the leading slash.

Example 4: using a servlet with a <[url-pattern|web.xml.URLPattern]> of /servlet/MyServlet. Note that like Example 2, this path is relative, so if the user attempts to access http://<domainName>/<appName>/someFolder, this won't work unless you also have a mapping for /someFolder/servlet/MyServlet
