Subject Re: Directory listing in Tomcat 5.5.14.
Date Tue, 03 Jan 2006 13:03:24 GMT
Directory listings are disabled by default. This is because there is a speed 
issue with tomcat trying to list very large directories. This could cause a 
DOS attack for those in a default configuration and having a directory with a 
LOT of files in it. See the FAQ for how to enable/disable directory listings.
