Subject (tomcat 4) absolute links in dir listing
Date Wed, 24 Sep 2003 14:08:13 GMT

I'm building an 'agent' in front of our http filesystem.
it checks every request, does some smart things and
dispatches to the file requested in DefaultServlet.

if I dispatch to a directory, the DefaultServlet returns
a dirlisting. I like this a lot. but the links in it are abolute
links, so the next click bypasses my agent.

'plain' Apache uses relative links. why did tomcat4
decide not to do that ?

any easy way I can turn it off ? (without  .. rebuilding DefaultServlet 



Internet search engines that take money from Web sites in exchange for 
prominent placement should make that practice clearer to Web users, 
federal regulators said Friday.Many search engine Web sites, including 
AltaVista, LookSmart and AOL Search, give preferred placement to paid 
advertisers. The Federal Trade Commission said that prime space can 
confuse Web users who are looking for the best response to their 
search, rather than ads for sites that paid up front.
