spring mvc root url map with tomcat

We typically use

 @RequestMapping("/")

to map the root url. It might not work with tomcat sometimes.

One reason was that that something (Tomcat?) was forwarding from “/” to “/index.jsp” when I had the file index.jsp in my WebContent directory. When I removed that, the request did not get forwarded anymore.

So the important thing here is: Don’t have any files sitting in WebContent that would be considered default pages(index.html, index.jsp, default.html, etc)

From here
