--- Comment #1 from Mark Thomas <> ---
Section 10.5 of the Servlet spec requires that JAR files deployed as part of a
web application have an extension of '.jar'

Tomcat performs all operations relating to static files within web applicaitons
(including JAR files) in a case sensitive manner to avoid security issues
caused by mixing case sensitive and case insensitive matching even on platforms
where the file system is not case sensitive.

- The JAR file specification explicitly places no limits on the name of a JAR
- File names are case sensitive on most operating systems. Windows is the major
