A high-volume real-time environment where on-the-fly JSP compilation is
allowed and ad-hoc insertion of new dynamic content is allowed? Sounds
like madness.

You are certainly welcome to patch Tomcat yourself: the Mapper uses the
simple url-pattern mapping rules specified by the servlet spec... you
could simply add your own that used "true" globbing or even regular
expressions if you are into that kind of thing.

May I ask what the problem is with sticking with Resin and/or Jetty? As
much as I like Tomcat myself... why are you considering switching?
