Subject Re: RemoteAddrValve syntax
Date Sun, 05 Apr 2009 19:51:19 GMT
I looked at the javadocs for the RemoteAddrValve and they provided no
further clarity on the syntax issue.

You're right, my test case mistakenly returned a false positive, ".*" could
match anything its true and their is no "common sense" wildcard in the Java
Regex package.  I looked at the javadoc for the regex package and found it a
little too pedantic.  I thought javadocs were supposed to be human-readable
;-)

thanks for the help
