Subject Re: TC 4.1.24 can't find my servlet-classes?
Date Tue, 02 Sep 2003 10:11:21 GMT
Hi, Kenneth!

Since v 4.1.x in $CATALINA_HOME/conf/webapps/web.xml

the servlet-mapping wich maps /servlet/* to the invoker-servlet is
commented out


This happened for security reasons, so it's probably no good idea to
reintroduce that mapping.
