Subject [PROPOSAL] Change to the 3.3 API
Date Sat, 25 May 2002 06:00:15 GMT
I'd like to add a new method (for now called 'preInitCheck') to the API to
be called before the check for calling the init method.  The current
JspInterceptor.requestMap would be split between the new preInitCheck method
(which would handle the compile), and the requestMap (which would register
the servlet).  In light of bug #7654, we may want to have a 'preInitCheck'
and 'postInitCheck', but I'm still not convinced on how important this case

This is a proposal, since there was a consensus to freeze the API.  I'm not
looking for people to help (although volunteers are always welcome), since
the changes are simple enough.  The only known bug that this fixes is the
rather obscure one that currently a JSP page that is accessed from a
NamedDispatcher will not be re-compiled.  More importantly (IMHO), this will
separate the JSP logic from ServletHandler and put it firmly into
JspInterceptor where it belongs.

Of course, I'm expecting that Pier will veto this on the grounds that he
can't be bothered to keep up with the 3.3 development. ;-)
