My question was: if you have a precompiled index.jsp, there will be
no file - only a <servlet-map> with uri=/index.jsp and the servlet 

DirectoryIndex will not find index.jsp, and will assume there
is no index - and serve the dir. Which is wrong.

The indexes as defined by the servlet spec may be real files
or virtual (mapped) resources.

If you can make sure that all paths are checked for both static and 
mapped resources - yes, you can use mod_dir.

I don't think this is an issue we should discuss - this case is already
solved, if no files on the apache machine there is nothing we can 
do but forward. 

The lb case is also not an issue - if there are local static files,
apache can serve them - and dynamic resources are handled by tomcat
