Class DefaultServlet

  • All Implemented Interfaces:, javax.servlet.Servlet, javax.servlet.ServletConfig, ResourceService.WelcomeFactory, ResourceFactory

    public class DefaultServlet
    extends javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet
    implements ResourceFactory, ResourceService.WelcomeFactory
    The default servlet.

    This servlet, normally mapped to /, provides the handling for static content, OPTION and TRACE methods for the context. The following initParameters are supported, these can be set either on the servlet itself or as ServletContext initParameters with a prefix of org.eclipse.jetty.servlet.Default. :

      acceptRanges      If true, range requests and responses are
      dirAllowed        If true, directory listings are returned if no
                        welcome file is found. Else 403 Forbidden.
      welcomeServlets   If true, attempt to dispatch to welcome files
                        that are servlets, but only after no matching static
                        resources could be found. If false, then a welcome
                        file must exist on disk. If "exact", then exact
                        servlet matches are supported without an existing file.
                        Default is true.
                        This must be false if you want directory listings,
                        but have index.jsp in your welcome file list.
      redirectWelcome   If true, welcome files are redirected rather than
                        forwarded to.
      gzip              If set to true, then static content will be served as
                        gzip content encoded if a matching resource is
                        found ending with ".gz" (default false)
                        (deprecated: use precompressed)
      precompressed     If set to a comma separated list of encoding types (that may be
                        listed in a requests Accept-Encoding header) to file
                        extension mappings to look for and serve. For example:
                        If set to a boolean True, then a default set of compressed formats
                        will be used, otherwise no precompressed formats.
      resourceBase      Set to replace the context resource base
      resourceCache     If set, this is a context attribute name, which the servlet
                        will use to look for a shared ResourceCache instance.
                        Set with a pathname relative to the base of the
                        servlet context root. Useful for only serving static content out
                        of only specific subdirectories.
      pathInfoOnly      If true, only the path info will be applied to the resourceBase
      stylesheet        Set with the location of an optional stylesheet that will be used
                        to decorate the directory listing html.
      etags             If True, weak etags will be generated and handled.
      maxCacheSize      The maximum total size of the cache or 0 for no cache.
      maxCachedFileSize The maximum size of a file to cache
      maxCachedFiles    The maximum number of files to cache
                        If set to true, it will use mapped file buffer to serve static content
                        when using NIO connector. Setting this value to false means that
                        a direct buffer will be used instead of a mapped file buffer.
                        This is set to false by default by this class, but may be overridden
                        by eg webdefault.xml
      cacheControl      If set, all static content will have this value set as the cache-control
                        Other file extensions that signify that a file is already compressed. Eg ".svgz"
                        Max entries in a cache of ACCEPT-ENCODING headers.
