Subject RE: Including Zip functionality in a filter...
Date Fri, 22 Oct 2004 18:04:12 GMT
right, I checked the 4.1 docs and removed the MimeTypes attribute and it 
still doesn't compress.

So i set compression="5" to have it compress any output length > 5 bytes 
be compressed.   still didn't work.
any other hints?   thanks much for your replies.

>Yet another reason to upgrade
Posted this problem last week:

I tried tomcat 5 (jdk142) and 5.5 (jdk15) but our servlet doesn't return 
any output (compression disabled) from a POST (content-length always 0), 
I'm assuming we have to recompile w/the new servlet-api.jar, or we are 
having some other strange runtime problem.   this production servlet works 
on a number of web servers since 2000.   The output is persisted to a 
file, so i know that much works, just not returned to the client. nothing 
in logs.
I understand this type of queston is too open ended .... to get any 
response.    sorry.

Look at the docs again.  The attributes for Tomcat 4.1 and 5.x are
different.  The former doesn't have a compressableMimeTypes attribute.
Yet another reason to upgrade.
