Jim,

Perhaps you didn't get a response because noone who read your original
message (including me) knew the answer.

The fact that you got a workaround in about 24 hours from this mailing list
despite your attitude is remarkable.

You should be grateful...

John

John,

I would not have an attitude except for the fact that I starting asking this
question yesterday afternoon and have not yet received an answer to my
question (I did receive a work around).

I understand that Tomcat is a free product no one is being paid to support
it.

I would go somewhere else (to get my question answered) except this is the
only place I know to get help running Tomcat.

Jim

Jim,

You ought to check your attitude at the door.  This is an volunteer user
support forum.  Noone is being paid to help you solve your problems.  If you
can't be polite, go somewhere else.

John

Fine, its not a feature, it's part of the servlet spec.  The problem is, I
can't get it to work and no-one seems to be able to offer me any suggestions
as to why its not working, or how to get it working.

It's not a TC feature, it's in servlet spec, and it was there at least since
2.1.
