Hi Lilianne, Remy,

I work in what has been a BEA shop for longer than the 3 years I've been here 
and have been been trying to convince management that Tomcat provides a better 
value proposition than WL.  We've just been presented with an opportunity to 
use Tomcat instead of WLX in a new server environment but when migrating apps 
found this bug.

I have a couple of points to make:
1. Whilst the JSP Servlet is only invoked if index.jsp is present I see no 
problem with it being invoked regardless (as it is if you request /index.jsp 
directly).  Either way I'd expect a 404 (although yes I acknowledge other 
welcome file list options might match successfully).
2. WL 8.1 SP3 does implement the spec correctly in this area (in relation to 
comment 7).

Is it unreasonable to request a configuration switch that enables the spec 
behaviour?
