Explanation

Welcome file list XML tag of the web.xml file is used to specify the default page of a web application if none is specified .This tag can have any number of "<welcome-file>" tags.

    <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">
    <welcome-file-list>
