Subject Tomcat ApplicationDispatcher forward handling
Date Tue, 11 Oct 2005 16:09:01 GMT
We have a question about QueryString handling in tomcat.  We have a
simple question; we noticed that tomcat carries querystring forward on
forward requests if the current forward querystring is NULL only.  Is
this the correct behavior and if so; were is this documented?  We've
been through the Servlet 2.4 spec and can't find a definition of this
behavior.

The specification indicates that javax.servlet.forward.query_string
should reflect the initial client requested query string; however the
specification seems quiet about request.getQueryString's behavior.  Any
insight would be helpful.

Thanks!

No, that's not what I mean.  As the 5.5.12 changelog indicates, issue
36541 is
fixed in that release.  It was included in the 5.5.12-alpha distro, and
so it's
in the stable release as well.

No, you misunderstood.  As an aside, even if the 36541 fix were not
included in
5.5.12, I would disagree with "actually unfixed" and "next 6 month" as
neither
would be accurate.  But these are separate issues for a separate thread
if you
want to rant about how Bugzilla is used or about how frequently we cut
releases.
