Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50026] DefaultServlet serves META-INF and WEB-INF from root when remapped on /folder/*
Date Sun, 03 Oct 2010 10:05:22 GMT

Some random thoughts:
- The default Servlet doesn't *need* to support serving content from an
arbitrary mapping. The user can just move the static content in the web-app to
the desired location
- The WebDAV Servlet (that extends the Default Servlet) does need to do this
and I suspect is the reason for just using getPathInfo() and not
getServletPath() + getPathInfo()
- We don't, currently, support configuring the Default Servlet for a sub-set of
the application's URL space (without using a sub-context). Chuck's proposed
change would support this. Need to think about the implications for WebDAV.

I'm leaning towards making Chuck's proposed change for the Default Servlet and
over-riding that in the WebDAV Servlet to restore the current behaviour.
