Thanks. It's beginning to sound like Tomcat won't be suitable for this app,
and I can respect the servlet spec, but it does seem odd to me that a JSP is
not just another servlet that happens to have a funny infix-dot name.  It
should obey the same rules of conduct as any servlet, and if not, then the
class should prevent the use of functions like getPathInfo() or the
documents warn against the use of these as the presence of them is giving a
false impression of jsp/servlet equivalence.
