Subject Hi all.
Date Wed, 26 Jul 2000 19:53:55 GMT
Hello all,

Just joined the Mailing list and though I would drop a note and say hi. I'm
getting pulled into JSP Page development, and figured I might as well
install TomCat on my apache WebServer. I'm running it on my NT Boxes,
because I'm not much of a UNIX guy. Anyway I'm having problems with the
config, but I'm still trying it on my own.

This has however encouraged me to pursue an Idea I've had, which is to setup
a Website that specializes in helping Windows Users Install Software coming
from the UNIX Camp, like Apache, TomCat, PHP, and and and... It's great
Software, but the Documentation is no where near end user ready... Not a
gripe, I know.. the focus is UNIX, but I'm hoping I can help other Windows
users with they're Install sorrows.

Let me know what you think, oh and the main reason I sent this email.... Hi!

That's intriguing.  I got the following results, where
is the directory containing the binary distribution of Tomcat 3.1:

    cd /usr/local/jakarta-tomcat/lib
    jar xvf servlet.jar
    javap -classpath . javax.servlet.ServletContext

returned the following results

    Compiled from
    public interface javax.servlet.ServletContext
        /* ACC_SUPER bit NOT set */
        public abstract java.lang.Object getAttribute(java.lang.String);
        public abstract java.util.Enumeration getAttributeNames();
        public abstract javax.servlet.ServletContext
        public abstract java.lang.String
        public abstract java.util.Enumeration getInitParameterNames();
        public abstract int getMajorVersion();
        public abstract java.lang.String getMimeType(java.lang.String);
        public abstract int getMinorVersion();
        public abstract javax.servlet.RequestDispatcher
        public abstract java.lang.String getRealPath(java.lang.String);
        public abstract javax.servlet.RequestDispatcher
        public abstract getResource(java.lang.String)
        public abstract
        public abstract java.lang.String getServerInfo();
        public abstract javax.servlet.Servlet
getServlet(java.lang.String) throws
        public abstract java.util.Enumeration getServletNames();
        public abstract java.util.Enumeration getServlets();
        public abstract void log(java.lang.Exception, java.lang.String);
        public abstract void log(java.lang.String);
        public abstract void log(java.lang.String, java.lang.Throwable);
        public abstract void removeAttribute(java.lang.String);
        public abstract void setAttribute(java.lang.String,

and the two methods we are discussing are the fourth and fifth ones

What happens when you compile a servlet (against your servlet.jar) that
tries to use
these methods?
