Add some security constraints to your directory.
(BTW: this isn't really a JSP question... )

most appservers will allow you to disallow directory browsing by setting a parameter in the configuration somewhere.
If the user then types in a directory without a filename he'll get a 403 (not allowed) error.
In any servlets/jsps you can handle them being called through incorrect channels if needed.

How to set this up will vary with the servlet container or web server you are using. Which is it?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
