Subject Re: AW: tomcat 3.1beta caching JSP pages?
Date Tue, 21 Mar 2000 23:56:42 GMT
It is not straightforward to overwrite the same file for various reasons I
won't go into here now. But thanks much for your investigation. I'll give it a
spin and let you know what I found.

In the meantime, just in case we don't lose track of this can you please file a
bug with all this information at That way whenever
each of us does a sweep of the bug database (hopefully before 3.1 final
release) we'll catch it.

Thanks much.
