Subject Re: How to configure
Date Tue, 01 Jul 2003 14:53:28 GMT

The JDK is case sensitive.

Java is case sensitive.

Case sensitive web applications are portable.  Case insensitive web 
applications are not.

Case sensitive installations are portable.  Case insensitive installations 
are not.

'nuf said.
