How to use Mod_autoindex.c

I am trying to get a directory listing of a location on my server using tomcat.
How do I use the mod_autoindex.c in tomcat to do that?

Is there a special way to configure a web.xml for that?

The mod_autoindex.c module is part of the Apache HTTPD server, not the Apache Tomcat server. The clues are in its name. First, and foremost ".c" means C programming language, not Java, and Tomcat, unlike Apache HTTP (more commonly known as simple "Apache"), is all Java.

If that wasn't clue enough. Anything named "mod_something" is almost certainly an Apache module.

Tomcat will index any directory within a webapp providing that there's nothing defined in web.xml that maps to the equivalent relative pathname. And, of course, providing that Tomcat has read-access rights to that directory. Although for directories within a WAR, that should always be the case.
