           Summary: Tomcat 6 invoker no longer loads unless privileged
           Product: Tomcat 6
           Version: 6.0.14
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jpetrula@hotmail.com


Unfortunately, the Tomcat FAQ
http://tomcat.apache.org/faq/misc.html#evil
does not mention up front that the Tomcat 6 invoker no longer loads unless
privileged.

It is not until you read the article
The Long and Sordid Tale of the Invoker Servlet
http://faq.javaranch.com/java/InvokerServlet
that this is stated.

The Tomcat FAQ
http://tomcat.apache.org/faq/misc.html#evil
needs to explicitly state that the Tomcat 6 invoker no longer loads unless
privileged. It should also state the procedure to make it privileged.

Although the Tomcat FAQ
http://tomcat.apache.org/faq/misc.html#evil
strongly warns against using the invoker,
it is useful for developmental purposes since many textbook examples use it.
