Subject RE: Tomcat 3.2.2 beta 4
Date Tue, 01 May 2001 19:17:13 GMT
Bloody hell.  I was just about to launch into a wonderful tirade about why
we shouldn't have change Tomcat just to work around some buggy compiler from
Microsoft when I realized the real problem isn't what you think it is.

The problem isn't the definition of the inner class, but the use of the
PrivilegedAction interface.  This interface didn't appear until JDK1.2 and
my guess is that your using JDK1.1.

Tomcat 3.2.x, because it implements the Servlet 1.1 specification must
maintain compatibility with JDK1.1 so this is a real Tomcat bug and it will
need to be fixed before releasing Tomcat 3.2.2.

Glenn, can you take a look at this?
