--- Comment #2 from Mark Thomas <> ---
There is a bug here but it was hard work to find. The lack of key information
provided with the test case did not help. For future reference, the following
information would have saved some considerable time:
- Maven version required (build failed with 2.2.1, worked with 3.0.4)
- Steps to execute the test case
- Make clear the issue was with embedded mode

The best test cases are as small as possible and are written as unit tests (of
which plenty of examples exist in the code base - including ones that use

The bug was that the implicit servlets (JSP, default) when added in embedded
mode were not marked as override-able. This has been fixed in trunk and 7.0.x
and will be included in 7.0.31 onwards.
