Subject RE: quotes in Protocol Handler name
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2012 00:50:01 GMT
Thanks for the info, Konstantin.  The IPV6 idea makes some sense, though it doesn't apply in
my particular case.

I see in the changelog that rjung did some work in 7.0.17, that was released in 2011-07-19
as 7.0.19.  (funny coincidence)

name has double quotes.  For example:  INFO: Initializing ProtocolHandler ["http-bio-8080"]

1. Check with a recent 7.0.x.
Last summer there was some work to remove unneeded quotes in the
middle of the names. Especially from the names of threads created for

2. Quotes around many bean names are intentional. E.g. connector name
can have IP address in it. The IPv6 address cannot be used in a name
unless the name is quoted, because of ":" symbol.
