|Summary:||mod_jk2 and Apache2 broken autoindex|
|Component:||Common||Assignee:||Tomcat Developers Mailing List <dev>|
Description marcs 2003-04-24 23:32:31 UTC
I have apache setup with: DirectoryIndex index.jsp I have mod_jk2 setup with: [uri:/*.jsp] The result is requests for index.jsp or for a directory with an index.jsp are properly forwarded to tomcat, however if I request a directory with no index.jsp file in that I want to have mod_autoindex handle, then mod_jk2 still forwards that to tomcat which returns an error because there is no index file. There needs to be support for forwarding using handlers, which would allow you to properly configure a Files directive to handle them with a SetHandler. Apache should be the one to figure out if the file exists. Another symptom of this same problem is requesting /foo.jsp where foo.jsp doesn't exist. Apache should be the one returning a 404, not tomcat. I want Apache to be the one deciding what should be handled when I am using its configuration directives. Using Location-style directives is a horrible idea for such things as it is a security issue when you have various names that can refer to the same file, eg. Windows. As the Apache documentation clearly states, Location directives should not be used to control access to files on disk but should only be used for true virtual namespaces.

This reads like an enhancement request to me.

I'm also seeing this problem. Is there any idea on when this will be added/corrected? How about any CVS code that resolves the problem? Thanks

same problem here
Comment 4 Mark Thomas 2004-06-19 11:47:27 UTC
This enhancement request has been transferred to Tomcat 5 because: - TC4 and TC5 share the connectors - TC4 is no longer being developed, only supported

As of November 15, 2004, JK2 is no longer supported. All bugs related to JK2 will be marked as WONTFIX. In its place, some of its features have been backported to jk1. Most of those features will be seen in 1.2.7, which is slated for release on November 30th, 2004. Another alternative is the ajp addition to mod_proxy which will be part of apache 2.
