That looks right at first glance.

(used debug) , so it always returns REQUEST in getDispatcherMapping.

Hmm. Odd. This is tested by the TCK that every Tomcat release must pass
so I don't think there is a bug - or if there is it is an odd edge case.

I'd suggest that the way forward is to write the simplest possible test
case (1 * JSP + 1 * Servlet + web.xml should be plenty) that
demonstrates this issue. If you still see the issue with that test case,
it will probably be time to open a bug.
