Subject isapi_redirector2 and wrapped headers: updated binary available?
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2003 01:10:55 GMT
I'm using IIS + Tomcat 4.1.24 + JK2 isapi_redirector2.dll. Everything has
been working so far.

However, now I'm receiving HTTP headers containing a Content-Type that is
continued on another line, and isapi_redirector2.dll is broken. (Sending the
exact same request direct to Tomcat works fine, and sending the same request
via the redirector with the Content-Type edited to be on one line works.)

I'm using the v2.0.2 (27-Nov-2002) prebuilt binary of the redirector, so I
thought I'd try the nightly, but it's dated 5-Oct-2002! (And I don't have

I think I've seen mention of an updated isapi_redirector2.dll on the -user
but there are so many JK2 related problems that searching the archive is a
lost cause. Is there an updated prebuilt binary that hopefully fixes this
bug available somewhere? Alternatively, is JK known to handle this
correctly? If so, I could drop back to that.


What the headers in the HTTP request are (that's a TAB in front of

Host: aaa 
SOAPAction: "ebXML"
Message-ID: bbb
Content-Type: multipart/related; type="text/xml"; start="<ccc>"; 
Content-Length: 8719
Connection: close

What Tomcat (correctly) sees when the request is sent direct to Tomcat
(ordering is irrelevant):

MIME host [aaa]
MIME soapaction ["ebXML"]
MIME message-id [bbb]
MIME content-type [multipart/related; type="text/xml"; start="<ccc>";
MIME content-length [8719]
MIME connection [close]

What Tomcat (incorrectly) sees when the request is sent via
IIS/isapi_redirector2.dll (that's a newline after "boundary=ddd"):

MIME connection [close]
MIME host [aaa]
MIME content-type [multipart/related; type="text/xml"; start="<ccc>"; ]
MIME soapaction ["ebXML"]
MIME message-id [bbb]
MIME       boundary=ddd
content-length [8719]
MIME content-length [0]
