Subject RE: versions 2.3 and 2.4 of web.xml
Date Thu, 30 Sep 2004 17:02:53 GMT

Further to my note below, plus my previous posts on "Who has got
<include-prelude> to work?", I think I might have stumbled across the
answers to both myself.

Basically my web.xml files were based on the v2.3 files that shipped with
the standard installation, and using these seems to have silently suppressed
the 2.4 features, including <include-prelude>.

Not sure if this is a bug - if web.xml encounters a tag which it knows is
valid in its current version, but not in the earlier version declared in the
<web-app> tag, should an exception be thrown, or should it silently ignore
