Subject RE: Can't get caseSensitive="false" to work
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2006 14:00:22 GMT
I know that it works in conf/context.xml.  Can you just setup a minimal
config in the context.xml file?

<Context caseSensitive="false">

    <!-- Default set of monitored resources -->


According to the docs, the server.xml is not recommended place to put
<Context> setup.

Nobody has any suggestions on this?  I still can't get it to go.
