Ack! You're right. But adding the python servlet as a mapping in web.xml does remove a bit of the flexibility (albeit not much) from the whole system.


I had a play with the source code of PyServlet last night, and it's relatively simple to modify so that it will look for the last reference to a ".py" file in the path and then ignore what comes after. Which would allow you to have a catchall url-pattern and not prespecify py servlets.

    According to cool-uris-don't-change you shouldn't expose the .py anyway. URIs should be logical and not implementation dependant.

      Aren't you nitpicking? And I think you've missed the point.
