I want to be able to run JSPs directly from the root of the domain on the 
webserver.  ie. http://domain.tld/index.jsp

When I access http://localhost/index.jsp when the path of the Context 
container is set to "/", I get a 404.  This, obviously, is undesirable.  
However, if I simply hit http://localhost/ Apache gives me a directory 
listing which shows me index.jsp.

I get a 404 File Not Found error when I try to access index.jsp from / when 
<Context path="/"

Apache httpd 2.0.47 and

It's not working as the root of the tomcat server on port 8080, but I wasn't 
expecting it to.  I want the root of the domain being able to serve JSPs and 
Servlets so I don't have to create a subdirectory off of the root for this

Sorry about that, most mailing lists I belong to are pretty free form.  I'll 
keep an eye on the amount of data sent in the future.

As for the rest of the configuration, everything is default except server.xml.  
When I startup Tomcat mod_jk.conf is generated in $CATALINA_HOME/conf/auto/ 
and is included by httpd.conf which is the only modification to that file I 
made aside from changing ServerName to ServerName localhost.

Any help would be appreciated.
