I tried using *.jsp/* and this threw a parsing error, the webapp refused to
run load.  *.jsp* ignored all jsp files.  I think other servlet containers
are using a globbing that is assumed to be the complete expression, which in
regex would be .*\.jsp, whereas it appears that tomcat is taking it in what
a regex would phrase as .*\.jsp$, ie it is enforcing the end of the string
as the end of the candidate string.  If this behaviour cannot be changed, I
have to change servlet containers, so I'm eager to find out one way or the
other if tomcat can accommodate this.
