Subject Re: How to set up a special folder to list all files under it?
Date Tue, 02 Jan 2007 01:09:58 GMT
a good tutorial for constructing URLS is located here


In my situation I have a contextPath which points to $CATALINA_BASE\webapps\WebAppName (so
this href tag will display
<a href="${contextPath}/src/org/ajaxtags/demo/servlet/">Java

I could have just as easily setup to point to a local file in Unix such as 
<a href="file:///user/martin/index.html">Index.html</a>

or to point to a local file on a windows box
<a href="file://C:\\user\\martin\\index.html">Index.html</a>

In case I didn't make it clear before, the idea is to create a copy of
the default servlet specifically for your webapp.  This renamed copy
will allow access to and listings of the directory specified in its
<url-pattern>, and nothing else.  The normal default servlet would
continue to supply static content for all other paths, without exposing
their directory structure.
