Subject RE: Use Tomcat stand-alone?
Date Thu, 18 May 2000 19:41:42 GMT
I do not know whether it is a bug or they (Sun because I believe Apache
inherited web server code from Sun) do not want you to use it in production
but it consistently truncates posted data to the same length. I spent half
of a day trying to figure out why my Servlet does not work under JWSDK and
works fine under JRun. When then the same happened with Tomcat (standalone)
I knew where to look. When I run Tomcat via Apache server everything works

Do you think this is a bug or a design decision?  Or is it due to a Java
And are you saying it doesn't apply if you're posting through apache into a
Tomcat hosted servlet?
