Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45812] New: No EOS bucket when using mod_jk with 401 response
Date Mon, 15 Sep 2008 18:25:11 GMT

           Summary: No EOS bucket when using mod_jk with 401 response
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: Unknown
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Native:JK

I send this to dev list, but received no response:<>

When mod_jk sends a 401, it is not sending an EOS (sends a FLUSH).  This causes
a module that buffers the response (for example, the mod_security2 module which
I maintain) to not realize the full page has been sent.  This causes httpd to
issue the default 401 response, which does not include the WWW-Authenticate
header and thus no prompt for credentials.

I am able to work around this, but I am confused as to why mod_jk does not send
an EOS.  Is it a bug?  If not, then why and how can a module know mod_jk is
done sending data (other than looking at C-L header)?

Some more info can be found in the ModSecurity issue tracker:
