Tomcat doesn't sort directory listings in my application at all, is there a way to affect this so that subdirs are shown first as usual? I know that default servlet manages this but I haven't found a way to affect this
What do you mean that "Tomcat" isn't sorting your directories? Are you trying to execute a piece of code, and that code isn't returning the directories in the order you desire? If so, please post the code fragment and I'll try to help.
Sorry if I wasn't clear enough, my apologies. Yes, as Bear said, I was refering to a situation where Tomcat's default servlet lists current directory contents when there is no welcome page.
I'm using globalXsltFile to style directory listing and showing this as a download page in my application. However, subdirectories are shown among the other files and the files are not sorted alphabetically at all which is pretty unconvenient. It has nothing to do with the fact that I'm using my own xslt file since it's the same when I use the default behaviour.
Do you think that this is a configuration or installation problem in my specific case?
The only way to change sorting generaly would be to rewrite the default servlet?
