A minimal sample web.xml (servlet 2.5)

A very short web.xml (Servlet 2.5) that declares a servlet and its mapping. Some elements, like session-config and welcome-file-list have reasonable defaults provided by web containers.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app version="2.5" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd">

<servlet>
<display-name>Servlet1</display-name>
<servlet-name>Servlet1</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>test.Servlet1</servlet-class>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>Servlet1</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/Servlet1</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

</web-app>
