Subject [5.0] Welcome Files
Date Wed, 21 Aug 2002 22:53:31 GMT

I have been looking into the Servlet 2.4 section 9.10 Welcome files
stuff.  In a nutshell, the spec now allows servlets to be welcome
files.  The can either be an 'exact match' or a 'prefix match.'

I implemented changes to StandardContextWrapper to bring Tomcat into
compliance.  I think it is pretty messy, but then again Welcome Files
are messy (per earlier posts.)

What do you think?   (The patch is for discussion purposes and contains
a lot of logging)
