Subject [BUG] tomcat 3.1 ... Possibly... docBase specification is case-sensitive without reporting the fact
Date Fri, 10 Nov 2000 18:28:29 GMT

I've been working with tomcat for the past 2 weeks and one of the things
that really caught me, is the fact that (at least in the Version 3.1) the
specifier '<context docBase ...' in the server.xml is case sensitive.
The Problem is, that Tomcat doesn't report something to the point, that it
is case sensitive but continues. It actually uses 'null' as piece of the
path. If you then try to call a servlet (in this case cocoon) it returns a
503. Obviously the return from SAX seems to be null for noexisiting and
there is no verification. Should be an easy enough fixed Problem... if it
isn't already.

I appreciate the work you guys do and hope this will help you.
