Oh gee, you mean that JRun 2.3.3 indicates itself as a 2.1 compatible
Servlet Engine and then doesn't support getResource()?

No comment.

It's a pain in the ass to maintain a servlet that is portable across
servlet engines, it's even worse if they "illegally" claim to be
compliant when they aren't.

What are we supposed to do? check if the servlet engine is JRun and
disable that? and what about weblogic, servletexec, websphere,
paperclips and everyone that has servlet hooks?

I'm _really_ frustrated by all this, expecially when we provide Tomcat
that works on every possible web server, it's stable and, more
important, it's free and open source.

Anyway, I'm open to suggestions on how to make this work if people need

This is a bug and it was recently fixed in the CVS.
