Subject Are spaces allowed in Servlet Context names?
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2002 19:33:33 GMT
Tomcat 4.0.1 does not seem to allow spaces, but are spaces really 
prohibuted by the spec?

For example if I have a Servlet Context named "spaces 2" in the
webapps dir like so:

    <installdir>/webapps/spaces 2

And I try to hit it with a properly escaped URL like below,
I get a 404 error.


Can anybody please point me to the part of the spec that
prohibits spaces? I've searched the 2.3 spec and Google and
Deja, but I can't find the clause or pointers to the clause
that prohibits spaces.
