Subject Re: not able to access URL in 2nd app in 7.0.23
Date Wed, 25 Jan 2012 18:35:45 GMT
OK here's what I tried:  I removed https.  A request through Firefox to http://localhost:6144/myapp/folder/action.do
still gives 404.  I overrode doGet of the servlet class to print whether get/post and the
request.getRequestURI and it is

get /myapp/folder/action.do

This is the same as before.  My servlet has code like this

      if (uri.equals("/myapp/folder/action.do"))

in the doPost method so it would process this action.

So the problem has to do with https.  I put the security-constraint stuff back in but removed
the auth-constraint, so everything is https but requires no authentication.  What gets printed
when you go to https://localhost:6143/myapp/folder/action.do is still

get /myapp/folder/action.do

So the issue is with the auth-constraint.

In my real code, my code makes a POST request to the given URL.  I re-ran this test:

So now it looks like the issue is this:

(a) In 7.0.22 and earlier versions my code made a POST request to https://localhost:6143/myapp/folder/action.do.
(b) Tomcat made a POST request to the login page https://localhost:6143/myapp/login.html
(c) My servlet got called, and the doPost method of the servlet got called.

But in 7.0.23 (b) Tomcat is making a GET request to https://localhost:6143/myapp/login.html

Thus I must move/copy my code in doPost to build login.html into doGet.

This did work.
