When I try this URL, my browser is searching (I can see it in the status bar)

But it works if I request http://servername/examples/jsp/


I also have a similar problem:

When I request http://localhost/examples, or http://localhost/examples/
I can see a web page with 3 directories links (images,jsp and servlets).

If i try to click on the last 2 links (jsp or servlets) then the browser

is trying to search If I click the images link, we enter
the directory correctly.

Requesting http://localhost/examples/jsp does the same error.

Requesting http://localhost/examples/jsp/ give me the JSP sample page,
and JSP samples work!

But if I request http://localhost:8080/examples/ and then click the jsp
then it works!!

How to remove the need for port declaration in URL?
