Subject JSP not working in Tomcat 5
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2003 21:41:07 GMT
I'm trying to deploy a bot from the book "Programming Spiders, Bots, and

Aggregators in Java".
It's the "translate" program in chapter 4, which is supposed to 
translate a page into pig latin.
Whenever I run it in Tomcat, I get a connection timed out message, even 
though I told my socket not to time out.

1. Does Tomcat restrict access to network connections?
If so, how do I enable my application to talk to any site?  (You're 
supposed to be able to enter the url of the site you
want to translate into the .jsp form, and then the java program will do 
the translation and then output the translated page.)

2. I tried adding the following lines to conf/catalina.policy:

grant codeBase "file:${catalina.home}/webapps/translate/-" {
 permission "*", "connect, accept, connect, 
listen, resolve";

grant codeBase "file:${catalina.home}/webapps/translate.war" {
 permission "*", "connect, accept, connect, 
listen, resolve";

Is the specification "*" okay?  I hope I don't have to list every 
possible url.

3. I tried stopping the Tomcat service and addint the -security "start 
parameter" in the Windows Services Properties window.
How do I get the tomcat service to use this parameter always?
