Ok, so I am mainly a client side programmer(JavaScript), and have to this point only developed small applications requiring not that much java code. 

The problem I am having is that my servlet intercepts all resource requests, so that only my welcome page is accessible. All css,js,image, etc are not showing up because I cannot figure out how to have the servlet run its application and session level logic, and then return the requested resource.

I was trying to stay away from frameworks or adding JSTL or JavaBeans to the top of every page.

I have searched Google for some relevant material, as well as my old college coursework, but haven't found anything useful. I would be greatly appreciative if someone can just point me in the correct direction. Thank you.
