Default puzzled with tomcat5.5.9

I use JDK1.5.0_04 and Tomcat5.5.9 under Windows 2003 Server,I have a directory like follows:
Tomcat 5.5\webapps\example\ex1.jsp
Tomcat 5.5\webapps\example\ex2.jsp
Tomcat 5.5\webapps\example\WEB-INF
Tomcat 5.5\webapps\example\WEB-INF\web.xml

I found a puzzle thing,I write follow address in IE6.0,

I find IE show my directory content!!!

Why? Before I use them under Windows 2000 server,it don't show directory content. I am very puzzled with it. How to do in order to not show directory content in Tomcat?

Any idea will be appreciated!

Hi Edward,

Did you specify the welcome file list in web.xml?

Something similar to this


This will make sure that call to http://localhost:8080/example will be routed to ex1.jsp

Generally the servers search for index file in the public area of the application. If they find one, it will be displayed else a listing of all contents will be displayed.
