Subject Re: Welcome file list in web.xml treats index.jsp different from other filenames
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 19:16:32 GMT
Also, please note

    <welcome-file-list> 
     <welcome-file /> 
    </welcome-file-list> 

This, in the application web.xml, seems to tell Tomcat "there are no welcome files in this
application, do not look for index.jsp etc" ...  


However     <welcome-file-list />
 
is ignored and server picks up default values in ${Tomcat.home}/conf/web.xml

Basically, <welcome-file-list /> should be enough to tell tomcat the same thing - "there
are no welcome files"

Subject: Welcome file list in web.xml treats index.jsp different from other filenames

If a file named index.jsp is declared as a welcome and it is not there in the system, tomcat
does not allow failover to framework like Tapestry.  However, if a file named Bienvenue.jsp
is declared as welcome file, the failover is allowed. 

For details see the following thread:
