Subject Re: How to configure
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2003 14:40:00 GMT

Why "shouldn't" I want to configure for case insensitivity?  What does it
really matter whether I type
	- or simply, without the finger gymnastics -

you can't (and shouldn't ;-)

from tomcat release notes...

6.6 URL's are now case sensitive on all operating systems

As of Tomcat 3.2, URL's are case sensitive for all operating systems,
including operating systems which have case insensitive file systems,
such as Windows.  This represents a change from Tomcat 3.1, where URL's
were case insensitive on case insensitive OS's.  This was done for a
number of reasons, security and portability among them.

A "non-portable" web application, i.e. one with case mismatches, which
worked on a case insensitive OS under Tomcat 3.1 will show its
non-portability when run under Tomcat 3.2 and later.
