Re: [jetty-users] Trouble with CGI

I have discovered a further problem with my solution -- the non-cgi content is a bit too liberal

  <Call name="addServlet">
      <New class="org.eclipse.jetty.servlet.ServletHolder">
          <Call name="forName" class="java.lang.Class">
        <Call name="setInitParameter">

This servers everything in the bugzilla directory -- Now Apache deals with this via an ".htaccess" file but really I need to figure out how to tell DefaultServlet:

(a) what files it cannot serve "*.pm, *.pl, *.tmpl, localconfig
(b) either don't recurse into subdirectories or what ones are allowed (or restricted)

Does anyone have a pointer to how this is done in Jetty 9, or a simple example (in XML like above).

The modules can be confusing, there is little to motivate one over the other (I find myself trying to take ones out to see if I really need them). It might be nice to determine what module "enables" a class (notionally 'java -jar ../jetty.home/start.jar --list-module-with-class=org.eclipse.jetty.servlets.CGI' which would answer 'servlets' -- to help figure this out, I used jar tvf in the lib directory then --list-modules -- so it can be done).

Interesting idea, added an enhancement request at

Note however, that the module name can often be guessed properly from the package name pattern org.eclipse.jetty.<module>
So you could have just looked at the FQCN of org.eclipse.jetty.servlets.CGI and saw that it was servlets that you needed.

Thanks, will do -- I do not think your note is in the documentation (it is useful to know) -- I'll go ahead and file an enhancement.
