Subject RE: New resource: Bugs every servlet programmer should know about
Date Tue, 11 Sep 2001 17:10:56 GMT
You forgot:  never use servlet instance variables.

This alone is the most common servlet programming bug I've
ever seen, and I see it again and again and again.

I think the containers should use reflection to sniff
a servlet class and if there is a servlet instance variable,
refuse to load the class.

But that's just me.

Subject: New resource: Bugs every servlet programmer should know about


I just posted on Servlets.com a new resource listing the top bugs a
servlet/JSP programmer should know about.  They're culled from my email
inbox, based on the most
frequently reported problems sent to me by users.  Several directly
involve Apache/Tomcat, so I thought this would be a good forum in which
to post a mention.

If you know of other similarly "high profile bugs", please let me know.
