Subject RE: IIS-Tomcat case insensitivity
Date Thu, 20 Sep 2001 09:37:16 GMT
One solution can be to create an isapi filter that will run prior to the
isapi-redirect, an will rewrite the URLs in the correct case. See MSDN for
how to write a filter.

If you are going to do that, I am willing to help, as I need such a filter
as well. If you can, please send me your solution.

Shay.

	Perhaps a possible solution to your problem would be to create
something in IIS that on 404 would examine the URL and change the case to
what is needed, and then perform a forward?
	I assume that this is possible, but I don't know how to do it.
