Subject Re: Help w/ Tomcat 4.0b6 and Apache
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2001 00:16:39 GMT
I'm using it but as you have found out I think very few ppl are using it on 
this list. I was able to view servlets thru apache, but the integration fails 
whenever I try reading any data (I use the post method for form data). I 
found a java null pointer exception in the catalina log trying to read from 
the input stream, which I guess is the problem. I have posted a bug on the 
bugzilla site. As with your experience everything works flawlessly when 
accessing the servlets thru tomcat directly, but seems broken when using the 
apache-tomcat extension. This could be some mis-configuration, or a bug but 
either way the lack of any response is not encouraging.

I know this is no help, but at least someone else is suffering as well :-). 
If I get any response I'll post it to this list
