>From the point of view of the o.a.t.m.s.ajp13, now getOffset() has the

was unusable.., take a look in o.a.t.m.s.Ajp13.Ajp13Packet.appendString,
There is some magic in the use of ob.setbyteOff and i
understand this code.. ob.getByteOff is requiered to return the end of
the last writed byte chunk ..perhaps a better aproach to this fix is to
change ob.getOffset to use  bb.getEnd instead os least
this will make the intention clearer.., in a really obscure code..

I reviewed it, and your are right for equals..but not for append..append
is suppoused to use the end of the buffer not the in append
getOffset is suppoused to return end not the start...

The better solution is to get rid of getOffset..and only use getStart or
getEnd where needed...

Well done, OSS is great because of this comments..and the possibility to
make them just-in-time..:)))
