Subject Additional questions on Tomcat ROOT == Apache Root
Date Mon, 02 Oct 2000 16:27:25 GMT
I have a slight problem with my servlet, which may be related to this. See 
if this is a result of a goofy ROOT setup...

The user clicks on a link looking like 
http://host/myservlet?name="myfile.pdf", where the "name" parameter is the 
name of the file that they want to download. However, when the file is sent 
back to the browser/plugin app, the filename is not "myfile.pdf", but 
"myservlet.pdf". The file contents are correct in every way, but the naming 
is off. I was able to fix it by setting the Location header in the 
response, but that munged up another feature of the servlet (which I posed 
questions on here) by doing a redirect.

Is this behavior based on the fact that my servlet may not be set up right 
as far as the context and/or root is concerned?
