How do you mark a directory as "unbrowsable" If you don't want people to be able to browse an image directory or something similiar?

Ok I think I got, I had to declare another servlet/servlet mapping pair of elements in web.xml:


Got stuck for a bit on the servlet-name tag as it didn't like default(which is what I cut/paste from the web.xml in the conf directory).

The above seems to work pretty much how I expected (though I haven't tested the whole app again).
