I've looked all over the adminconsole, and I don't see where I can configure
a file serving servlet.  Not only that, I'm not sure I understand how an
HTML page is "contained" in an application.  When an HTTP request for a URL
comes in on a given port, who determines that requests on that port are
supposed to go to a file serving servlet, and which one?
