    Add the following tag in the /mid-tier/WEB-INF/web.xml file:

      

    <welcome-file-list>
         <welcome-file>apps/en/arserver/appalias/start.jsp</welcome-file>
    </welcome-file-list>

      

    IMPORTANT: This tag must be placed below the last </mime-mapping> and before the <error-page> tags in the web.xml file.

    The /apps/en/arserver/appalias/startup.jsp must be a file and path under the midtier directory.
