      Description

      Consider the following:
      *.do is mapped to a servlet
      welcome files are index.jsp, index.do

      The intention is that the index.jsp page should be used if present and index.do (which always maps to the servlet) used if it is not. However, a strict reading of the servlet spec requires that a 404 is returned in index.jsp is not present .
