Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-479) Root of WebApp Displays WEB-INF and META-INF Directories
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2005 16:04:38 GMT

Kevan Miller commented on GERONIMO-479:

I just verified that HEAD is behaving as Petr previously described. I also had a look at the
Servlet Spec.

Section SRV.9.10 "Welcome Files" seems to cover this scenario. It states that if a welcome
file is not found, the container can do what it wants. Returning a 404 or a directory listing
are options listed as things that a container might want to do. So, Jetty is perfectly within
its rights...

So, I say close this one out...

> 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).
