welcome page resolutions do not take mapped servlets or jsp pages into account

           Summary: welcome page resolutions do not take mapped servlets or
                    jsp pages into account
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.0.4 Final
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: wtff@freenet.de


I am trying to do the following thing:

I created a jsp page called index.jsp an put it into the root path of a webapp.
This page shall be a welcome page. Therefore I could specify index.jsp as a 
welcome page within the web descriptor, which works fine. Now I would like to 
hide the .jsp suffix from the users. Therefore I created a servlet mapping that 
maps the index.jsp page to the url pattern /index.html and specified index.html 
to be a welcome page.
This doesn't seem to work. If I manually type into my 
browser "<webapp>/index.html" then my jsp page is invoked, which is fine, but 
if I just type "<webapp>" then I get a directory listing.
I believe that this behaviour is not correct.

For better understanding I will post an extract of the web descriptor as well:

<servlet>
	<servlet-name>root-page</servlet-name>
	<jsp-file>/index.jsp</jsp-file>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
	<servlet-name>root-page</servlet-name>
	<url-pattern>/index.html</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

<welcome-file-list>
	<welcome-file>index.html</welcome-file>
</welcome-file-list>


Since index.html is specified as the welcome page, if I access the root 
directory / then, to my intuition, catalina should make a redirect or a forward 
to /index.html. It should then realize that a jsp page called /index.jsp is 
mapped to this URL and invoke it.
