Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-479) Root of WebApp Displays WEB-INF and META-INF Directories

Petr Sickboy Hejl commented on GERONIMO-479:

I tested this bug today with GERONIMO-569 (StackOverflow) patch by Greg Wilkins. Summary is:
1) when no welcome file is specified, server list out the content of app root directory (and
I'm not sure if this is incorrect..., someone who knows the specification could help?)
2) if user tries to access the WEB-INF or META-INF directory 404 is returned (so it is nice
and correct, isn't it?)

If the behaviour described in item 1) is correct, this issue should be closed.
I attach my test webapp ;)

> I deployed a simple webapp containing nothing more than a web.xml.  There is no welcome.jsp
configured or provided.
> The deploy was OK, but when I browse to http://localhost:8080/testbed I see a directory
listing, with the directories WEB-INF and META-INF listed.  This, itself, should not happen.
> When clicking on WEB-INF, I generate a StackOverflow.  I would expect a nice "Forbidden"
message, or even a 404 (or whatever the Servlet spec says).
