Subject RE: [RFC] Handling the '*' URL
Date Fri, 11 Jul 2003 12:35:29 GMT
Hi Bill, I am partial to handling it in the default servlet.
I agree the root context can't speak definitively for all 
contexts, but I think it has a better chance of knowing a
proper response than the connector.

| Subject: [RFC] Handling the '*' URL
| 
| 
| This is really a Request-For-Comments, I'm not proposing anything.  I'm
| looking into resolving Bug #21454.
| 
| At the moment, requests for e.g:
|   OPTIONS * HTTP/1.1
|   TRACE * HTTP/1.1
| get properly handled by TC 5 (thanks to Keith's patch), buy passing them to
| DefaultServlet.  However, the '*' URL is really a HTTP Protocol URL, so it
| seems to me that it really should be handled by the Connector instead of the
| Servlet.  On the other hand, we have access to the rich Servlet-API
| implementations (Ok, so I don't in 3.3-land, but I can fake it ;-).  So my
| problem is that I can't see the correct route to go here.
| 
| Opinions?
