                             Release Notes for:
                             Apache Tomcat Version 3.3.1
  This document describes the changes that have been made since the
  last release of Tomcat 3.3.
  Bug Fixes
  Feature Additions:
  Bug No.  Description
           Restored prefix attribute to InvokerInterceptor.  It was available in
           Tomcat 3.2.x.
           Added SingleThreadModel pooling to ServletHandler.  The default is to
           use pooling.
           Added optional checking (configured on SessionId module) to ensure
           that the SSL session IDs match for each request within a Tomcat
           session.  This check is disabled by default.
           Added class from Tomcat 4.0 so
           response.encodeURL() can work under SSL without JSSE.  This can occur
           if you have Apache forwarding SSL requests to a Tomcat that doesn't
           have JSSE installed.
  	 Fixed logic for response.encodeURL() so that it will work correctly 
  	 if the input URL includes an anchor tag.
  	 Improved the handling of invalid web.xml files.  Now you get the same
  	 error messages every time you parse the file.
  	 Moved the setting of the default "*.jsp" mapping so that it is now 
  	 possible to entirely disable support for jsp files.
  	 Fixed problem with jsp_precompile parameter to JSP files.
           Context properties and ContextManager properties can now be set with
           <Property ... /> elements, i.e: 
               <Property name="propname" value="thevalue" />
           For backwards compatibility, the ContextManager "lower-case-p"
           <property ... /> version supported by Tomcat 3.3. is still supported.
           Added variable substitution handling to ContextXmlReader, allowing
           variable substitution to be used in <Context ...></Context>
  	 Added support for PureTLS as an SSL option.  Also, any attribute
           used to create the socket factory, such as "rootfile" (or
           "keystoreType" for JSSE), is now settable on the Http10Connector
           element in server.xml.
           The configuration files generated by ApacheConfig, IISConfig and
           NSConfig were improved for the case when the forwardAll attribute
           is false. Primarily, a servlet mapping like "/foo/*" now generates
           a mod_jk mapping for "/foo" as well as "/foo/*" to better match
           the servlet spec.
           The default log handler was updated to specify autoFlush=true for
           the PrintWriter so the output doesn't just go to a buffer.  Since
           this logger is replaced a new logger set by the LogSetter module,
           its reduction in efficiency won't affect normal operation.
           ServerXmlReader now logs a warning if the modules.xml file isn't
           The internal test script, test-tomcat.xml, has been made more
           configurable and the Admin app internal test page, test.jsp, has
           been updated to make use of this.  With appropriate input settings,
           the tests can be run against Tomcat standalone, Apache, IIS, and
           Netscape (v4.1) without any failures.
           Japanese resource strings were added and StaticInterceptor and
           ErrorHandler modules were updated to take advantage of them.  In
           addition, useAcceptLanguage and useCharset attributes were added
           to the StaticInterceptor module to allow configuration of how
           the locale and character set encoding of the directory listings
           are derived.
           Added a socketCloseDelay attribute to Http10Interceptor.  The
           default is -1, which disables the delay.  If set > 0, a
           Thread.sleep(<delay>) is executed prior to reading and discarding
           unread input and closing the socket.  This is intended to
           help diagnose problems resulting from unread input that
           arrives during the closing of the socket.
  	 Make the App-classloader configurable to allow using the 1.1
  	 loader even when running under Java2.  This should allow for better
  	 jar reloading at the cost of not enforcing sealing etc.  
           The IISConf module was updated to support an isapiRedirector
           attribute which specifies the name of the redirector plugin DLL.
           It also now writes a "properties" file the can be used for
           configuration of the redirector instead of registry settings.
           The isapi_redirect.dll was enhanced to support a uri_select
           configuration setting that controls which form of URL is forwarded
           to Tomcat.  The normalized/decoded URL used by Tomcat 3.3 is
           still the default.  The original URL or re-encoded normalized/decoded
           URL may be forwarded instead.  This was done to provide better
           support for isapi_redirect.dll's use with web servers other than
           Tomcat 3.3, such as Tomcat 3.2.x.
           Added a useWebAppCL attribute to JspInterceptor.  When true,
           Java compilation using "" will run in the
           web application's classloader.  When false (the default), Java
           compilation using "" runs in the container
           classloader.  Using a value of true may help on certain HP-UX
           systems.  In all other cases, useWebAppCL should be false.
           Currently webWebAppCL="true" can not be used when running under a
           security manager, otherwise security exceptions will prevent
           JSPs from compiling.
           Added "reloadable" attribute to AutoWebApp module.  If true,
           reloading will be enabled in all added contexts.  If false, reloading
           will be disabled.  The default is true.
           Added "defaultRedirectStatus" attribute to ErrorHandler module. It
           may be set to "301" or "302".  The default is "301".  It determines
           the status code set by the "redirect" handler if a status code has
           not already been set.  This primarily affects the status code used
           when the StaticInterceptor module redirects a "directory" URL that
           doesn't end with a '/' and redirects to welcome files.
           Added shutdown support using Ajp13 and updated StopTomcat task
           to support automatic or explicit use of Ajp12 or Ajp13 protocol to
           shutdown Tomcat.  This includes use of an optional "secret" password
           with either protocol.
  Bug No.  Description
           Fixed problem with JSP page names that match a Windows DOS device
           name, such as aux.jsp.  Instead of potentially hanging the thread
           that services the request, these requests now return "404 Not Found".
           DecodeInterceptor was updated to not convert '+' to space in the
           path portion of the request URL.  RFC2396 allows '+' in the path
           of a URL.
           Modified IntrospectionUtils.getClassPath() to add "classes"
           directory to the list prior to jars.
  1657     JSPs with tag names that contain '-' or '.' will now compile without
           an "Invalid expression" error
  4382 script no longer deletes the file which could
           cause a problem shutting down if Tomcat was accidentally started
  5994     Fix seconds calculation problem in DateTool
  4418     Ported Tomcat 3.2.x fix for race condition in ServerSocketFactory.
  4436     Reduce log output from DecodeInterceptor if debug level is zero.  This
           avoids having a log entry for each request.
  4564     Fix bug in Http10Interceptor where getRemoteAddr() returns
           instead of correct address.
  4599     ThreadPool was updated to not reset the maxThreads, maxSpareThreads
           and minSpareThreads values in its start() method.
           Fixed problem in AccessInterceptor where the beginning characters
           of the login or error page match the context path.  Tomcat could
           mistakenly think that the context path had been incorrectly included
           in the login or error page setting.  It can still make this mistake
           if the page is under a sub-directory with the same name as the
           context path.
           The missing jdbcRealm.getCredentialsSQLException property string was
           Fixed bug with useJspServlet option in JspInterceptor.  If set to true
           untrusted web applications couldn't run the JspServlet because
           jasper.jar and tools.jar weren't accessible.
  4923     Default permissions were added in PolicyInterceptor to allow direct
           read access to the webapp docBase and work directories.  This is
           in addition to the permissions allowing access to the contents of
           these directories.  These new permissions allows "exists()" to be
           executed on those directories without a security exception when
           running under a security manager.
  4955	 Fixed bug in the parsing of the query string to 
  	 RequestDispatcher.include/forward wasn't handling the case where only
  	 the parameter name was specified.
  4948	 Fix DependClassLoader to be a Java2 ClassLoader when running under
  	 a Java2 JVM.  
  5005     If requested JSP file doesn't exist, avoid creating work directories
           and version file.
  	 Fixed problem with jsp_precompile parameter to JSP files.
           Eliminated some hard coded '\n' line separators used by Jasper in the
           translated Java file.
  	 Fixed the position of the ;jsessionid when Tomcat generates a 401 
  	 response.  Now it is before the query string instead of after.
  5497	 Ignore the If-Modified-Since header when including a static page.
  	 Do not return a body with 304 responses (forbidden by HTTP/1.x and
  	 confusing to NS < 6.x).
           HttpServletRequestFacade now resets the reader when recycled.
           Previously, calling getReader() on a recycled facade on which
           getReader() was called, you would get the old reader rather than
           a new reader for the current request.
  5724	 Supress the check for WEB-INF in the "Default Servlet" (aka 
  	 StaticInterceptor).  The check was redundant, and was causing
  	 Spec problems.
  5191	 Fix parsing of JSP comments with extra '-' characters.
  5983	 Fix the flushing of unread POST data on the HTTP connector.  On the
  	 reported bug, it was mostly a nuisance.  In other cases (see 6143)
  	 it was causing major problems.  To avoid DOS attacks, the number
           of flush attempts is configurable, with a default of 20.
  6234	 Recycle the Writer in the ResponseFacade if it is the error state when
  	 the facade is recycled.
  6348     Fix problem with getNamedDispatcher() when used with a JSP mapped
           in the web.xml.
  Bug No.  Description
  4313     Bug in property substitution for server.xml and apps.xml files was
  4826     Fixed AutoWebApp so the dir attribute can be an absolute path on
           Windows systems.
  5390	 Fixed the behavior of LoadOnStartup servlets when the servlet is
  	 actually a JSP page.
  5365	 Fixed the JasperMangler to handle Java reserved words correctly.
  5958     ApacheConfig, IISConfig, and NSConfig were updated so mappings that
           end with "/*" will write a mapping with and without the ending "/*".
  6004     Updated Http10Connector to accept any attribute.  The attributes
           without predefined setters will be included with the predefined
           ones that are made available when the secure socket factory is
           Updated JSSEImplemention to support a separate keystorePass
           attribute as the keystore password.  It will default to the keypass
           attribute if not set.
  6137     Fix the admin webapp to be more careful when using the remove-context
  	 feature.  Also, the boxes were mis-labeled.
           A bug was fixed in isapi_redirect.dll where it would mistake an
           encoded '?' in the URI path as the query string delimitor.
  Bug No.  Description
           Tomcat-on-NetWare-HowTo.html updated to fix errors related to new
           functionality in Tomcat 3.3.
           tomcat-ug.html updated with additional classloader information and
           details on the variable substitution available in Context
           serverxml.html updated to document new checkSSLSessionId attribute on
           SessionId module.  A note was added to Ajp12Connector to document the
           requirement for maxThreads to be 2 or more if it is to be used to
           shutdown Tomcat.  Section on variable substitution was updated.
           tomcat-iis-howto.html updated to make it clearer that the "Filter Dlls"
           key is used only on Win98.
           JDBCRealm-howto.html updated to name the correct class and its jar
           location for digested passwords.
