Subject Deployment trouble: Directory Listing For /
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2003 16:29:06 GMT
Hi there,

I just joined the list, so if this question has been asked recently, please
forgive me.

I'm using Tomcat 4.1 on Redhat 7.3.  I know that the server is working as
the admin application seems to work, although it mangles the server.xml file
pretty good.

The trouble I'm having is that although I can see that my servlet is
deployed, I can't make the mapping work.  I know the servelt is deployed
because debugging information in the init() method is showing up in the

When I go to the url:

I just get: Directory Listing For / ... with no files in the list.

(Note: When I press enter, the browser replaces the url with almost the same
on, but with an extra slash:

The log shows:
2003-04-01 11:18:09 StandardContext[/news]: Mapping contextPath='/news' with
requestURI='/news/' and relativeURI='/'
2003-04-01 11:18:09 StandardContext[/news]:   Trying exact match
2003-04-01 11:18:09 StandardContext[/news]:   Trying prefix match
2003-04-01 11:18:09 StandardContext[/news]:   Trying extension match
2003-04-01 11:18:09 StandardContext[/news]:   Trying default match
2003-04-01 11:18:09 StandardContext[/news]:  Mapped to servlet 'default'
with servlet path '/' and path info 'null' and update=true

I did not add any special config in the server.xml file -- only in the
web.xml file in the WEB-INF dir:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<!DOCTYPE web-app
    PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"

  <display-name>News Feed</display-name>
    News Feed Application

  <!-- Action Servlet Configuration -->


  <!-- Action Servlet Mapping -->

Why, oh, why is this happening?
I appreciate your suggestions.
