Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 50527] New: misleading error message for unknown message
Date Wed, 29 Dec 2010 13:56:42 GMT

           Summary: misleading error message for unknown message
           Product: Tomcat 6
           Version: 6.0.29
          Platform: PC
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina

For unknown HTTP methods, Tomcat says:

" not defined in RFC 2068 and is not supported by the servlet API"

This is misleading.

1) RFC 2068 has been obsoleted by RFC 2616 over 10 years ago. It doesn't matter
what it says.

2) As a matter of fact, what RFC 2616 says doesn't matter either. Methods are
an extension point, and extension methods work just fine *when implemented*.

So the message (in javax/servlet/http/ should be
something like:

" not implemented by this servlet for this URI".
