Subject Re: filter-mapping to tomcat DefaultServlet
Date Sun, 06 Nov 2005 03:37:39 GMT
Hi Hassan

Yeah, I believe it was Tim Funk who had originally
recommended the same to me as you are doing.  Maybe
it is the presence of the <url-pattern> that is causing
it to fail, though I doubt it.  I guess I understood the
<url-pattern> to be the "filter responds to..." and the
<servlet-name> to be the "filter sends to..."

Anyhow, I should probably try this again, just to be sure.
(For your info: FedoraCore1/tomcat 5.0.28/j2sdk 1.4.2_05)
