The reason 5.x allows you to do this, is because it follows the 2.4
Servlet spec, which now allows servlets to be included in the
welcome-file list (where before, it was only HTML or JSP).  So if you're
completely desperate to have this functionality, and a simple META
refresh from index.jsp will NOT do...  can you upgrade to the 5.x
tomcat?
 
For Bill: What's the 3.3.2 hack?  And why was it taken out?
