Subject [VOTE] Tomcat 4.1.18 release
Date Thu, 19 Dec 2002 11:15:19 GMT
A bug exists (unfortunately) in Tomcat 4.1.16 and Tomcat 4.1.17 which 
causes the servlet Writer to stay in an invalid state after an 
IOException occurs (99% of the time caused by an abrupt client 
disconnection). After this happens, the processor will never be able to 
output data using the Writer, causing blank pages. This is more often 
seen with JSPs.

The bug affects Coyote HTTP/1.1, and may also affect Coyote JK 2, 
although this is less likely.

It is proposed that Tomcat 4.1.18, based on the Tomcat 4.1.17 code, with 
the addition of the patch committed by Bill fixing JK 2 SSL support, as 
well as the following patch (which I committed one hour ago):
