Read the doc:
http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/context.html

"caseSensitive

"If the value of this flag is true, all case sensitivity checks will be
disabled. If not specified, the default value of the flag is true.

"NOTE: This flag MUST NOT be set to false on the Windows platform (or
any other OS which does not have a case sensitive filesystem), as it
will disable case sensitivity checks, allowing JSP source code
disclosure, among other security problems."

It's strongly recommended that you teach your users to type, since
case-sensitivity is mandated by the URI Generic Syntax document (RFC
3986) and the servlet spec.
