browse web-inf folder

i have a web app which i am trying to deploy within netweaver.

When the app starts up I get an error message which says WEB-INF folder is not browsable. I realize it may not be standard to be reading from this folder, but would rather just get the application working as-is to start, and then deal with that issue later as we fully migrate it over.

Is there any way i can change the security to allow browsing of that folder?

thanks.

    Hi,

    There is no chance to browse this directory.

    Servlet specification says:

    "

    •It is not part of the public document tree of the application. No file contained in the WEB-INF directory may be served directly to a client by the container.

    •The contents of the WEB-INF directory are visible to servlet code using the getResource() and getResourceAsStream() methods call on the ServletContext.

    "

    From WAS 6.40 SP11 is allowed include / forward in WEB-INF directory.

    Best Regards,
