Subject AW: change the default JSP index.jsp for ROOT context in Tomcat 6
Date Wed, 12 Aug 2009 14:15:59 GMT
Chuck,

I will not start a discussion about security ...
It's only an additional simple "trick" to hide it to some curious people in the inner ring,
like students and so on.
The Tomcat itself is by it's port 8080 not accessible from outside.

;-)

If you think that constitutes security, you're fooling yourself.  Security by obscurity is
an invitation to hackers.
