It is as a result Jasper. A request for:
OPTIONS http://localhost:8080/ HTTP/1.1

OPTIONS http://localhost:8080/index.jsp HTTP/1.1

eventually calls the _jspService method created by Jasper in
org.apache.jasper.compiler.Generate.generatePreamble() which assumes a
request method of GET.

I have commitments which mean I will not be able to look at this for a
day or two at the earliest. If no one else fixes it between now and
early next week, I'll look at it then.
