The "servletmappingurlpattern" information is configured in the web.xml
file and is specified within the <servlet-mapping> tag that follows the
<servlet> tag which defines the struts control servlet.  In my case the
<servlet-mapping> tag appears as follows

determine which url-patterns can be mapped to the struts action servlet.
The other would be


I am not dealing with the latter case only the former.  Does anyone know
how the information in the <servlet-mapping> tag can be retrieved from
