Subject Again Problem with HTTP-PUT in Tomcat 5.0.16
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2004 15:53:07 GMT
Hi Everyone,

I run a Tomcat 5.0.16 with a j2sdk1.4.2_03. I get HTTP ERROR 400 when I try to send a 
HTTP-PUT Request to a Servlet.
The Servlet extends the HttpServlet class and overrides the doPut-method (everything 
as it is supposed to be, I guess).
It never executes the code in this doPut method though.

What else do I have to do to process PUT-Requests on Tomcat 5.0.16?

I would appreciate any help on this topic.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards
