ROOT/index.jsp contains wrong statement 

           Summary: ROOT/index.jsp contains wrong statement
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.0.18
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: florian.ebeling@gmx.de


Hi,

the welcome page of the ROOT app states that "It can be found on the local
filesystem at: $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/ROOT/index.jsp" This is not true. Don't
ask how long it took me to find out, that despite the presence of a regular
ROOT/index.jsp and despite the above statement the default page comes from
either WEB-INF/classes or from WEB-INF/lib/catalina-root.jar.

I'm pretty puzzled why one might try to obfuscate example code in such a
fashion, but at least the text of the page should be changed. I can imagine that
this is there to improve performace on the very first impression -- but at what
price?!

If this is the reason, then please consider also: I think it is nearly always
one of the first steps of a new tomcat user to try to change this page and see
what happens. It *was* my first step, when I started.  I think this drives away
many a new user from this great server software.
