How to deploy a servlet to multiple contexts

I have a web app that uses a simple redirect servlet to remap requests based on a regex to another server. Basically there are several sets of branded static content that are handled by another server.

So I have the following contexts which should all be handled by the redirect module in my project:

/gfx
/img
/js
/css  

I can't figure out how to do this. When I go into Edit Configurations it seems to be 1:1 -- I can map redirect to any one of those contexts but only one.

My first thought was that a workaround might be to import the (maven) module for redirect multiple times, but it seems that is not allowed. I tried it, but nothing happened... no error message, but no redundant modules either.

Anyone know how to do this?

Cheers,

Sean

You can map the module to '/' context in Edit Configurations dialog and redirect any path using your servlet.

Thanks Nikolay,

I guess that means that it can't be done then? I was hoping to avoid hardcoding paths into the servlet, but that will work to get me up and running on IDEA.

Cheers,
