Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 51536] New: Servlet 3.0 Specific Error: Invalid byte tag in constant pool
Date Wed, 20 Jul 2011 18:53:55 GMT

             Bug #: 51536
           Summary: Servlet 3.0 Specific Error: Invalid byte tag in
                    constant pool
           Product: Tomcat 7
           Version: 7.0.19
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina
    Classification: Unclassified

tomcat 7.0.19 (also tried 7.0.16)
Java 1.6.0_22 (also upgraded to 1.6.0_26 - same issue)
CentOS 5.6 

I just switched the web.xml to servlet 3.0 (from a app running servlet 2.4
previously without issue) and now I'm seeing the following error (turned on
fine logging in the util class):

FINE: Scanning JAR [file:/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_22/jre/lib/ext/jcharset.jar] from
Jul 19, 2011 10:04:40 AM org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig deployDirectory
SEVERE: Error deploying web application directory ROOT
org.apache.tomcat.util.bcel.classfile.ClassFormatException: Invalid byte tag in
constant pool: 60

Mailing list suggested I add jcharset.jar to jarsToSkip in
 Doing that exposed other jars with the same problem:


This workaround won't work though, because there are now taglib jars failing,
and they need to be scanned.
