Changelog

Tomcat 7.0.54 (violetagg)
Catalina
fix Fix custom UTF-8 decoder so that a byte of value 0xC1 is always rejected immediately as it is never valid in a UTF-8 byte sequence. Update UTF-8 decoder tests to account for UTF-8 decoding improvements in Java 8. The custom UTF-8 decoder is still required due to bugs in the UTF-8 decoder provided by Java. Java 8's decoder is better than Java 7's but it is still buggy. (markt)
fix : Add more options for managing FIPS mode in the AprLifecycleListener. (schultz/kkolinko)
fix : When a WAR is modified, undeploy the web application before deleting any expanded directory as the undeploy process may refer to classes that need to be loaded from the expanded directory. If the expanded directory is deleted first, any attempt to load a new class during undeploy will fail. (markt)
fix : Avoid an infinite loop if an application calls session.invalidate() from the session destroyed event for that session. (markt)
update : Simplify file name pattern matching code in StandardJarScanner. Ignore leading and trailing whitespace and empty strings when configuring patterns. Improve documentation. (kkolinko)
fix : Ensure that removing an MBean notification listener reverts all the operations performed when adding an MBean notification listener. (markt)
add : Information about finished deployment and its execution time is added to the log files. Patch is provided by Danila Galimov. (violetagg)
add : Properties for disabling server information and error report are added to the org.apache.catalina.valves.ErrorReportValve. Based on the patch provided by Nick Bunn. (violetagg/kkolinko)
fix Only create XML parsing objects if required and fix associated potential memory leak in the default Servlet. (markt)
fix Modify generic exception handling so that StackOverflowError is not treated as a fatal error and can handled and/or logged as required. (markt)
fix : Avoid StackOverflowError on non-Windows systems if a file named \ is encountered when scanning for TLDs. (markt)
add : Extend checks for suspicious URL patterns to include patterns of the form *.a.b which are not valid patterns for extension mappings. (markt)
add Extend XML factory, parser etc. memory leak protection to cover some additional locations where, theoretically, a memory leak could occur. (markt)
fix Ensure that a TLD parser obtained from the cache has the correct value of blockExternal. (markt)
fix : Raise the visibility of exceptions thrown when a problem is encountered calling a getter or setter on a component attribute. The logging level is raised from debug to warning. (markt)
fix : Make resources accessed via a context alias accessible via JNDI in the same way standard resources are available. (markt)
add : Property for disabling server information is added to the DefaultServlet. Server information is presented in the response sent to the client when directory listings is enabled. (violetagg)
add Add the org.apache.naming package to the packages requiring code to have the defineClassInPackage permission when running under a security manager. (markt)
add Add the org.apache.naming.resources package to the packages requiring code to have the accessClassInPackage permission when running under a security manager. (markt)
fix Make the naming context tokens for containers more robust. Require RuntimePermission when introducing a new token. (markt/kkolinko)
fix : Allow NamingContextListener to clean up on stop if its start failed. (kkolinko)
add : Avoid eclipse debugger pausing on uncaught exceptions when tomcat renews its threads. (slaurent)
fix Minor fixes to ThreadLocalLeakPreventionListener. Do not trigger threads renewal for failed contexts. Do not ignore threadRenewalDelay setting. Improve documentation. (kkolinko)
fix Correct regression introduced in that broke authentication of users when using the JAASMemoryLoginModule. (markt)
fix : HttpServletRequest.getContextPath() should return the undecoded context path used by the user agent. (markt)
fix : When using SPNEGO authentication, log the exceptions associated with failed user logins at debug level rather than error level. (markt)
fix : Ensure that HttpSessionBindingListener.valueUnbound() uses the correct class loader when the SingleSignOn valve is used. (markt)
Coyote
add : Assert that both Coyote and Catalina request objects have been properly recycled. (kkolinko)
fix : Correct documentation for default value of socket linger for the AJP and HTTP connectors. (markt)
Jasper
fix : Fix a regression in the handling of back-slash escaping introduced by the fix for . (markt/kkolinko)
fix : Improve method matching for EL expressions. When looking for matching methods, an exact match between parameter types is preferred followed by an assignable match followed by a coercible match. (markt)
fix Correct the handling of back-slash escaping in the EL parser and no longer require that \$ or \# must be followed by { in order for the back-slash escaping to take effect. (markt)
fix : Avoid NoSuchElementException while handling attributes with empty string value in custom tags. Patch provided by Hariprasad Manchi. (violetagg)
Cluster
fix Remove cluster and replicationValve from cluster manager template. These instance are not necessary to template. (kfujino)
fix Add support for cross context session replication to org.apache.catalina.ha.session.BackupManager. (kfujino)
fix Remove the unnecessary cross context check. It does not matter whether the context that is referenced by other context is set to crossContext=true. The context that refers to the different context must be set to crossContext=true. (kfujino)
code Move to org.apache.catalina.ha.session.ClusterManagerBase common logics of org.apache.catalina.ha.session.BackupManager and org.apache.catalina.ha.session.DeltaManager. (kfujino)
code Simplify the code of o.a.c.ha.tcp.SimpleTcpCluster. In order to add or remove cluster valve to Container, use pipeline instead of IntrospectionUtils. (kfujino)
fix There is no need to set cluster instance when SimpleTcpCluster.unregisterClusterValve is called. Set null than cluster instance for cleanup. (kfujino)
code Backport refactoring of AbstractReplicatedMap to implement Map rather than extend ConcurrentHashMap to enable Tomcat 7 to be built with Java 8. (markt)
WebSocket
fix : Avoid a NPE if Tomcat's Java WebSocket 1.0 implementation is used with the Java WebSocket 1.0 API JAR from the reference implementation. (markt)
fix Increase the default maximum size of the executor used by the WebSocket implementation for call backs associated with asynchronous writes from 10 to 200. (markt)
add Add a warning if the thread group created for WebSocket asynchronous write call backs can not be destroyed when the web application is stopped. (markt)
fix Ensure that threads created to support WebSocket clients are stopped when no longer required. This will happen automatically for WebSocket client connections initiated by web applications but stand alone clients must call WsWebSocketContainer.destroy(). (markt)
fix : When creating a new session, add the message handlers to the session before calling Endpoint.onOpen() so the message handlers are in place should the onOpen() method trigger the sending of any messages. (markt)
fix : Report WebSocket sessions that are created over secure connections as secure rather than as not secure. (markt)
fix Stop threads used for secure WebSocket client connections when they are no longer required and give them better names for easier debugging while they are running. (markt)
Web applications
fix Add Support for copyXML attribute of Host to Host Manager. (kfujino)
fix Ensure that "name" request parameter is used as a application base of host if "webapps" request parameter is not set when adding host in HostManager Application. (kfujino)
fix Correct documentation on Windows service options, aligning it with Apache Commons Daemon documentation. (kkolinko)
update : Improve log4j configuration example. Clarify access logging documentation. Based on patches provided by Brian Burch. (kkolinko)
update : Backport improved HTML markup for tables and code fragments from Tomcat 8 documentation. (kkolinko)
fix : Ensure that the Manager web application does not report success for a web application deployment that fails. (slaurent)
fix Fix target and rel attributes on links in documentation. They were lost during XSLT transformation. (kkolinko)
update Improve valves documentation. Split valves into groups. (kkolinko)
Other
fix Align DisplayName of Tomcat installed by service.bat with one installed by the *.exe installer. Print a warning in case if neither server nor client jvm is found by service.bat. (kkolinko)
update : Update to version 1.1.30 of Tomcat Native library. (schultz)
update Update package renamed Apache Commons BCEL to r1593495 to pick up some additional changes for Java 7 support and some code clean up. (markt)
add In tests: allow to configure directory where JUnit reports and access log are written to. (kkolinko)
Tomcat 7.0.53 (violetagg)released 2014-03-30
Catalina
add Make it easier for applications embedding and/or extending Tomcat to modify the javaseClassLoader attribute of the WebappClassLoader. (markt)
fix Improve the robustness of web application undeployment based on some code analysis triggered by the report for . (markt)
fix : Improve merging process for web.xml files to take account of the elements and attributes supported by the Servlet version of the merged file. (markt)
fix : The response should be closed (i.e. no further output is permitted) when a call to AsyncContext.complete() takes effect. (markt)
fix : Enable Tomcat to work with alternative Servlet and JSP API JARs that package the XML schemas in such as way as to require a dependency on the JSP API before enabling validation for web.xml. Tomcat has no such dependency. (markt)
fix : Fix NullPointerException in MemoryRealm when authenticating an unknown user. (markt)
fix : Allow the deployer to update an existing WAR file without undeploying the existing application if the update flag is set. This allows any existing custom context.xml for the application to be retained. To update an application and remove any existing context.xml simply undeploy the old version of the application before deploying the new version. (markt)
fix Redefine the globalXsltFile initialisation parameter of the DefaultServlet as relative to CATALINA_BASE/conf or CATALINA_HOME/conf. Prevent user supplied XSLTs used by the DefaultServlet from defining external entities. (markt)
add Add a work around for validating XML documents (often TLDs) that use just the file name to refer to refer to the JavaEE schema on which they are based. (markt)
fix : Cache resources loaded by the class loader from /META-INF/services/ for better performance for repeated look ups. (markt)
Coyote
fix : Make sure the NIO AJP output buffer is cleared on any error to prevent any possible overflow if it is written to again before the connection is closed. This extends the original fix for the APR/native output buffer to the NIO connector. (kkolinko)
fix : Avoid possible request corruption when using the AJP NIO connector and a request is sent using more than one AJP message. Patch provided by Amund Elstad. (markt)
fix : Reduce garbage collection when the NIO connector is under heavy load. (markt)
fix Improve processing of chuck size from chunked headers. Avoid overflow and use a bit shift instead of a multiplication as it is marginally faster. (markt/kkolinko)
fix Fix possible overflow when parsing long values from a byte array. (markt)
Jasper
fix : Add Java 8 support to SMAP generation for JSPs. Patch by Robbie Gibson. (markt)
fix : Improve handing of overloaded methods and constructors in expression language implementation. (markt)
fix : Restore the validateXml option to Jasper that was previously renamed validateTld. Both options are now supported. validateXml controls the validation of web.xml files when Jasper parses them and validateTld controls the validation of *.tld files when Jasper parses them. (markt)
fix : Throw an IllegalStateException if a call is made to ServletContext.setInitParameter() after the ServletContext has been initialized. (markt)
fix : Do not escape values of dynamic tag attributes containing EL expressions. (kkolinko)
fix Make the default compiler source and target versions for JSPs Java 6 since Tomcat 7 requires Java 6 as a minimum. (markt)
update : Update to the Eclipse JDT Compiler P20140317-1600 which adds support for Java 8 syntax to JSPs. Add support for value "1.8" for the compilerSourceVM and compilerTargetVM options. (markt)
WebSocket
fix Avoid a possible deadlock when one thread is shutting down a connection while another thread is trying to write to it. (markt)
fix Call onError if an exception is thrown calling onClose when closing a session. (remm)
Web applications
code In the documentation: add support for several documentation tags from Tomcat 8. Such as <version-major/>. (kkolinko)
add : Add the SSL Valve to the documentation web application. (markt)
fix : Improve readability by using left alignment for the table cell containing the request information on the Manager application status page. (markt)
fix Fixed java.lang.NegativeArraySizeException when using "Expire sessions" command in the manager web application on a context where the session timeout is disabled. (kfujino)
fix Add support for LAST_ACCESS_AT_START system property to Manager web application. (kfujino)
fix Add definition of org.apache.catalina.ant.FindLeaksTask. (kfujino)
fix : If the Manager web application does not perform an operation because the web application is already being serviced, report an error rather than reporting success. (markt)
fix : Add a note to the documentation about not using WebSocket with BIO HTTP in production. (markt)
Other
fix : Improve service.bat so that it can be launched from a non-UAC console. This includes using a single call to tomcat7.exe to install the Windows service rather than three calls, and using command line arguments instead of environment variables to pass the settings. (markt/kkolinko)
fix Fix regression in 7.0.52: when using service.bat install to install the service the values for --StdOutput, --StdError options were passed as blank instead of "auto". (kkolinko)
fix Align options between service.bat and exe Windows installer. For service.bat the changes are in --Classpath, --DisplayName, --StartPath, --StopPath. For exe installer the changes are in --JvmMs, --JvmMx options, which are now 128 Mb and 256 Mb respectively instead of being empty. Explicitly specify --LogPath path when uninstalling Windows service, avoiding default value for that option. (kkolinko)
code Simplify Windows *.bat files: remove %OS% checks, as java 6 does not run on ancient non-NT operating systems. (kkolinko)
fix : Explicitly use the BIO connector in the SSL example in server.xml so it doesn't break if APR is enabled. (markt)
fix : Avoid a web application class loader leak in some unit tests when running on Windows. (markt)
fix Correct build script to avoid building JARs with empty packages. (markt)
add Allow to limit JUnit test run to a number of selected test case methods. (kkolinko)
fix : Remove used file cpappend.bat from the distribution. (markt)
Tomcat 7.0.52 (violetagg)released 2014-02-17
Catalina
fix Generate a valid root element for the effective web.xml for a web application for all supported versions of web.xml. (markt)
Coyote
code Pull up SocketWrapper to AbstractProcessor. (markt)
fix In some circumstances asynchronous requests could time out too soon. (markt)
Tomcat 7.0.51 (violetagg)not released
Catalina
fix : ServletContainerInitializer defined in the container may not be found. (markt/jboynes)
fix : Provide a per Context option (containerSciFilter) to exclude container SCIs. (markt)
fix : When deploying applications, treat a context path of /ROOT as equivalent to /. (markt)
fix : Improve the implementation of the class loader check that prevents web applications from trying to override J2SE implementation classes. As part of this fix, refactor the way a null parent class loader is handled which enables a number of null checks and object creation calls to be removed. (markt)
fix : Differentiate between foo.war the WAR file and foo.war the directory. (markt)
fix : Improve the single sign on (SSO) unit tests. Patch provided by Brian Burch. (markt)
fix : Retain order when reporting errors and warnings while parsing XML configuration files. (markt)
fix : Fix issue with SPNEGO authentication when using IBM JREs. IBM JREs only understand the option of infinite lifetime for Kerberos credentials. Based on a patch provided by Arunav Sanyal. (markt)
fix : When loading resources for XML schema validation, take account of the possibility that servlet-api.jar and jsp-api.jar may not be loaded by the same class loader. Patch by Juan Carlos Estibariz. (markt)
fix : When creating a WebSocket connection, always call ServerEndpointConfig.Configurator.getNegotiatedSubprotocol() and always create the EndPoint instance after calling ServerEndpointConfig.Configurator.modifyHandshake(). (markt)
fix : Ensure that the WebSocket connection is closed after an IO error or an interrupt while sending a WebSocket message. (markt)
fix : If a request in async mode has an error but has already been dispatched don't generate an error page in the ErrorReportValve so the dispatch target can handle it. (markt)
fix Add missing javax.annotation.sql.* classes to annotations-api.jar. (markt)
fix The type of logger attribute of Context MBean should be not org.apache.commons.logging.Log but org.apache.juli.logging.Log. (kfujino)
fix : Fix a concurrency bug in JULI's LogManager implementation. (markt)
fix : When the attribute rmiBindAddress of the JMX Remote Lifecycle Listener is specified it's value will be used when constructing the address of a JMX API connector server. Patch is provided by Jim Talbut. (violetagg)
fix When environment entry with one and the same name is defined in the web deployment descriptor and with annotation then the one specified in the web deployment descriptor is with priority. (violetagg)
fix Change default value of xmlBlockExternal attribute of Context. It is true now. (kkolinko)
Coyote
fix Avoid possible NPE if a content type is specified without a character set. (markt)
fix : Make the forwarded remote IP address available to the Connectors via a request attribute. (markt)
fix : Fix sendfile support for the HTTP NIO connector. (markt)
fix : Ensure Async requests timeout correctly when using the NIO HTTP connector. (markt)
add : Make it possible to use the Windows-MY key store with the BIO and NIO connectors for SSL configuration. It requires a keystoreFile="" keystoreType="Windows-My" to be set on the connector. Based on a patch provided by Asanka. (markt)
Jasper
fix Correct a regression in the XML refactoring that meant that errors in TLD files were swallowed. (markt)
fix : Correct typo in the log message for a wrong value of genStringAsCharArray init-param of JspServlet. This parameter had a different name in Tomcat 6. (kkolinko)
fix : Fix processing of XML schemas when validation is enabled in Jasper. (kkolinko)
fix : Don't throw an IllegalArgumentException when JspFactory.getPageContext is used with JspWriter.DEFAULT_BUFFER. Based on a patch by Eugene Chung. (markt)
fix : When using the extends attribute of the page directive do not import the super class if it is in an unnamed package as imports from unnamed packages are now explicitly illegal. (markt)
fix : A regression in the fix for meant that when EL containing a ternary expression was used in an attribute a compilation error would occur for some expressions. (markt)
fix Correct several errors in jspxml Schema and DTD. (kkolinko)
fix Change default value of the blockExternal attribute of JspC task. The default value is true. Add support for -no-blockExternal switch when JspC is run as a standalone application. (kkolinko)
Cluster
code Simplify the code of o.a.c.ha.tcp.SimpleTcpCluster.createManager(String). Remove unnecessary class cast. (kfujino)
WebSocket
fix Do not return an empty string for the Sec-WebSocket-Protocol HTTP header when no sub-protocol has been requested or no sub-protocol could be agreed as RFC6455 requires that no Sec-WebSocket-Protocol header is returned in this case. (markt)
Web applications
fix Add index.xhtml to the welcome files list for the examples web application. (kkolinko)
fix Clarify that the connectionTimeout may also be used as the read timeout when reading a request body (if any) in the documentation web application. (markt)
fix Clarify the behaviour of the maxConnections attribute for a connector in the documentation web application. (markt)
fix : Update the documentation web application to make it clearer that a Container may define no more than one Realm. (markt)
fix : Where available, displayed the forwarded remote IP address available on the status page of the Manager web application. (markt)
fix Correct links to the Tomcat mailing lists in the ROOT web application. (kkolinko)
fix In Manager web application improve handling of file upload errors. Display a message instead of error 500 page. Simplify parts handling code, as it is known that Tomcat takes care of them when recycling a request. (kkolinko)
Extras
fix , : Copy the XML schemas used for validation that are packaged in jsp-api.jar to servlet-api.jar so that an embedded Tomcat instance can start without Jasper being available. This also enables validation to work without Jasper being available. (markt/kkolinko)
fix : Enable the JmxRemoteLifecycleListener to work over SSL. Patch by esengstrom. (markt)
Other
fix : Enable the stop script to work when the shutdown port is disabled and a PID file is defined. This is only available on platforms that use catalina.sh. (markt)
fix : When forcing Tomcat to stop via kill -9 $CATALINA_PID, the catalina.sh script could incorrectly report that Tomcat had not yet completely stopped when it had. Based on a patch by jess. (markt)
fix Package correct license and notice files with embedded JARs. (markt)
code Remove svn keywords (such as $Id) from source files and documentation. (kkolinko)
fix Fix CVE-2014-0050, a denial of service with a malicious, malformed Content-Type header and multipart request processing. Fixed by merging latest code (r1565163) from Commons FileUpload. (markt)
fix : Expose the httpusecaches property of Ant's get task as some users may need to change the default. Based on a suggestion by Anthony. (markt)
Tomcat 7.0.50 (violetagg)released 2014-01-08
Catalina
fix Handle the case where a context.xml file is added to a web application deployed from a directory. Previously the file was ignored until Tomcat was restarted. Now (assuming automatic deployment is enabled) it will trigger a redeploy of the web application. (markt)
fix Fix string comparison in HostConfig.setContextClass(). (kkolinko)
code Streamline handling of WebSocket messages when no handler is configured for the message currently being received. (markt)
fix Handle the case where a WebSocket annotation configures a message size limit larger than the default permitted by Tomcat. (markt)
fix : This is a partial fix that bypasses the relatively expensive check for a WebSocket upgrade request if no WebSocket endpoints have been registered. (markt)
fix : Prevent a NPE when web.xml references a taglib file that does not exist. Provide better error message. (violetagg)
Coyote
fix When using the BIO connector with an internal executor, do not display a warning that the executor has not shutdown as the default configuration for BIO connectors is not to wait. This is because threads in keep-alive connections cannot be interrupted and therefore the warning was nearly always displayed. (markt)
Jasper
fix JspC uses servlet context initialization parameters to pass configuration so ensure that the servlet context used supports initialization parameters. (markt)
Cluster
fix In AbstractReplicatedMap#finalize, remove rpcChannel from channel Listener of group channel before sending MapMessage.MSG_STOP message. This prevents that the node that sent the MapMessage.MSG_STOP by normal shutdown is added to member map again by ping at heartbeat thread in the node that received the MapMessage.MSG_STOP. (kfujino)
fix Add time stamp to GET_ALL_SESSIONS message. (kfujino)
Web applications
fix Fix the sample configuration of StaticMembershipInterceptor in order to prevent warning log. uniqueId must be 16 bytes. (kfujino)
Extras
update Update dependencies that are used to build tomcat-juli extras component. Apache Avalon Framework is updated to version 4.1.5, Apache Log4J to version 1.2.17. (rjung)
Tomcat 7.0.49 (violetagg)not released
Catalina
fix Correct a regression in the new XML local resolver that triggered false failures when XML validation was configured. (markt)
fix Prevent a NPE when destroying HTTP upgrade handler for WebSocket connections. (violetagg)
Tomcat 7.0.48 (violetagg)not released
Catalina
add : Add support for unpacking WARs located outside of the Host's appBase in to the appBase. (markt)
fix : Configure the Digester to use the server class loader when parsing server.xml rather than the class loader that loaded StandardServer. Patch provided by Roberto Benedetti. (markt)
fix : Correctly handle JSR 356 WebSocket Encoder, Decoder and MessageHandler implementations that use a generic type such as Encoder.Text<List<String>>. Includes a test case by Niki Dokovski. (markt)
fix Correctly handle WebSocket Encoders, Decoders and MessageHandlers that use arrays of generic types. (markt)
fix : Ensure that the WebSocket session is made available to MessageHandler method calls. (markt)
fix Updated servlet spec version and documentation section-number reported when JAR files are rejected for containing a trigger class (e.g. javax.servlet.Servlet). (schultz)
add Modify the WebSocket handshake process so that the user properties Map exposed by the ServerEndpointConfig during the call to Configurator.modifyHandshake() is unique to the connection rather than shared by all connections associated with the Endpoint. This allows for easier configuration of per connection properties from within modifyHandshake(). (markt)
fix : Log a warning but continue if the memory leak detection code is unable to access all threads to check for possible memory leaks when a web application is stopped. (markt)
fix Define the web-fragment.xml in tomcat7-websocket.jar as a Servlet 3.0 web fragment rather than as a Servlet 3.1 web fragment. (markt)
fix : Add a per web application executor to the WebSocket implementation and use it for calling SendHandler.onResult() when there is a chance that the current thread also initiated the write. (markt)
fix Prevent file descriptors leak and ensure that files are closed when configuring the web application. (violetagg)
fix Fixed the name of the provider-configuration file located in tomcat7-websocket.jar!/META-INF/services that exposes information for javax.websocket.server.ServerEndpointConfig$Configurator implementation. (violetagg)
fix : Remove the unnecessary setting of the javax.security.auth.useSubjectCredsOnly system property in the SpnegoAuthenticator as in addition to it being unnecessary, it causes problems with using SPNEGO with IBM JDKs. Patch provided by Arunav Sanyal. (markt)
fix : Ensure that the request and response are recycled after an error during asynchronous processing. Includes a test case based on code contributed by Todd West. (markt)
fix : Add an option to the JNDI Realm to control the QOP used for the connection to the LDAP server after authentication when using SPNEGO with delegated credentials. This value is used to set the javax.security.sasl.qop environment property for the LDAP connection. (markt)
fix : Log an error if the MemoryUserDatabase is unable to find the specified user database file. (markt)
fix : Correctly enforce the restriction in JSR356 that no more than one data message may be sent to a remote WebSocket endpoint at a time. (markt)
fix When Catalina parses TLD files, always use a namespace aware parser to be consistent with how Jasper parses TLD files. The tldNamespaceAware attribute of the Context is now ignored. (markt)
fix Deprecate the tldNamespaceAware Context attribute as TLDs are always parsed with a namespace aware parser. (markt)
fix Correct a logic error that meant that unpackWARs was ignored and the WAR was always expanded if a WAR failed to deploy. (markt)
add Add support for defining copyXML on a per Context basis. (markt)
fix Define the expected behaviour of the automatic deployment and align the implementation to that definition. (markt)
add When running under a security manager, change the default value of the Host's deployXML attribute to false. (markt)
add If a Host is configured with a value of false for deployXML, a web application has an embedded descriptor at META-INF/context.xml and no explicit descriptor has been defined for this application, do not allow the application to start. The reason for this is that the embedded descriptor may contain configuration necessary for secure operation such as a RemoteAddrValve. (markt)
fix Prevent an NPE in the WebSocket ServerContainer when processing an HTTP session end event. (markt)
add : Add the ability to set a custom SSLContext to use for client wss connections. Patch provided by Maciej Lypik. (markt)
fix : If the GSSCredential for the cached Principal expires when using SPNEGO authentication, force a re-authentication. (markt)
add : If the main web.xml contains an empty absolute-ordering element and validation of web.xml is not enabled, skip parsing any web-fragment.xml files as the result is never used. (markt)
fix : Extend support for digest prefixes {MD5}, {SHA} and {SSHA} to all Realms rather than just the JNDIRealm. (markt)
fix : Ensure that if a larger than default response buffer is configured that the full buffer is used when a Servlet outputs via a Writer. (markt)
fix : Further fixes to enable SPNEGO authentication to work with IBM JDKs. Based on a patch by Arunav Sanyal. (markt)
add Fix CVE-2013-4590: Add an option to the Context to control the blocking of XML external entities when parsing XML configuration files and enable this blocking by default when a security manager is used. The block is implemented via a custom resolver to enable the logging of any blocked entities. (markt)
Coyote
code Implement a number of small refactorings to the APR/native handler for upgraded HTTP connections. (markt)
fix Fix an issue with upgraded HTTP connections over HTTPS (e.g. secure WebSocket) when using the APR/native connector that resulted in the unexpected closure of the connection. (markt)
fix Ensure that the application class loader is used when calling the ReadListener and WriteListener methods when using non-blocking IO. A side effect of not doing this was that JNDI was not available when processing WebSocket events. (markt)
add Make the time that the internal executor (if used) waits for request processing threads to terminate before continuing with the connector stop process configurable. (markt)
fix : Improve the error message when SSLEngine is disabled in the AprLifecycleListener and SSL is configured for an APR/native connector. (markt)
add If a request that includes an Expect: 100-continue header receives anything other than a 2xx response, close the connection This protects against misbehaving clients that may not sent the request body in that case and send the next request instead. (markt)
fix Improve the parsing of trailing headers in HTTP requests. (markt)
Jasper
fix : Fix a regression caused by the fix to . When processing JSP documents, attributes in XML elements that are template content should have their text xml-escaped, but output of EL expressions in them should not be escaped. (markt)
fix : The JSP compiler used a last modified time of -1 for TLDs in JARs expanded in to WEB-INF/classes (IDEs often do this expansion) when creating the dependency list for JSPs that used that TLD. This meant JSPs using that TLD were recompiled on every access. (markt)
Cluster
add Add log message that initialization of AbstractReplicatedMap has been completed. (kfujino)
fix The logger of AbstractReplicatedMap should be non-static in order to enable logging of each application. Side-effects of this change is to throw RuntimeException in MapMessage#getKey() and getValue() instead of Null return and error log. (kfujino)
code Simplify the code of DeltaManager#startInternal(). Reduce unnecessary nesting for acquisition of cluster instance. (kfujino)
fix Remove unnecessary attributes of stateTransferCreateSendTime and receiverQueue from cluster manager template. These attributes should not be defined as a template. (kfujino)
fix Fix MBean attribute definition of stateTransfered. The method name is not isStateTransfered() but getStateTransfered(). (kfujino)
fix Correct stop failure log of cluster. Failure cause is not only Valve. (kfujino)
fix Remove unnecessary sleep when sending session blocks on session sync phase. (kfujino)
fix Expose stateTimestampDrop of org.apache.catalina.ha.session.DeltaManager via JMX. (kfujino)
fix When the ping timeouted, make sure that memberDisappeared method is not called by specifying the members that has already been removed. (kfujino)
add Add log message of session relocation when member disappeared. (kfujino)
fix If ping message fails, prevent wrong timeout detection of normal member that is no failure members. (kfujino)
Web applications
add Add some documentation on the SSL configuration options for WebSocket clients. (markt)
add Add to cluster document a description of notifyLifecycleListenerOnFailure and heartbeatBackgroundEnabled. (kfujino)
fix Update the documentation with information for WebSocket 1.0 specification and javadoc. (violetagg)
fix : Clarify the role of the singleton attribute for JNDI resource factories. (markt)
fix : Add documentation on the allRolesMode to the CombinedRealm and LockOutRealm. Patch by Cédric Couralet. (markt)
add Expand the information on web applications that ship as part of Tomcat in the security how-to section of the documentation web application. (markt)
fix Expand the description of the WebSocket buffers in the documentation web application to clarify their purpose. (markt)
add Correct the documentation for Cluster manager. (kfujino)
add Add information on how to configure integrated Windows authentication when Tomcat is running on a non-Windows host. (markt)
Extras
update Update commons-logging to version 1.1.3. (rjung)

fix : Recycle the byte to character converter used for URIs between requests to ensure an error in one request does not trigger a failure in the next request. (markt)
fix Use the newly added improved UTF-8 decoder for decoding UTF-8 encoded URIs and UTF-8 encoded request bodies. Invalid UTF-8 URIs will not cause an error but will make use of the replacement character when an error is detected. This will allow web applications to handle the URI which will most likely result in a 404 response. The fall-back to decoding with ISO-8859-1 if UTF-8 decoding fails has been removed. Invalid UTF-8 sequences in a request body will trigger an IOException. The way the decoder is used has also been improved. The notable change is that invalid sequences at the end of the input now trigger an error rather than being silently swallowed. (markt)
fix : Ensure that the correct request body length is used when swallowing a request body after FORM authentication prior to restoring the original request preventing possible hanging when restoring POST requests submitted over AJP. (markt)

fix : Do not limit saving of request bodies during FORM authentication to POST requests since any HTTP method may include a request body. Based on a patch by Nicholas Sushkin. (markt/kkolinko)
fix : RemoteAddrFilter used getRemoteHost instead of getRemoteAddr when filtering Comet events. (schultz)
fix : Make the inclusion of a response body with a redirect response introduced to address optional and disabled by default due to the side-effects of including a body with the response in this case. (markt)
fix : Correctly handle protocol relative URLs when used with sendRedirect(). (markt)

Once deployment of a web application fails in one form (e.g. WAR), no further attempt (e.g. directory) will be made to deploy that web application. The base Lifecycle implementation has been improved to allow failed web applications to be started once the configuration issues have been resolved. Any changes to a context.xml file (global, per host or web application specific) will now result in a redeploy of the affected web application(s) that ensures that any changes are correctly applied rather than a reload which ignores changes in context.xml files. (markt/kkolinko)

fix While scanning JARs for TLDs and fragments, avoid using JarFile and use JarInputStream as in most circumstances where JARs are scanned, JarFile will create a temporary copy of the JAR rather than using the resource directly. This change significantly improves startup performance for applications with lots of JARs to be scanned. (markt)
fix Ensure response is committed when AsyncContext#complete() is called. (markt)
add Add a container event that is fired when a session's ID is changed, e.g. on authentication. (markt)

fix Take account of time spent waiting for a processing thread when calculating connection and keep-alive timeouts for the HTTP BIO connector. (markt)
fix : Don't trigger a NullPointerException when the SSL handshake fails with the HTTP-APR connector. Patch provided by Mike Glazer. (markt)
fix Improve handling in AJP connectors of the case where too large a AJP packet is received. (markt)
fix Restore the automatic disabling of HTTP keep-alive with the BIO connector once 75% of the processing threads are in use and make the threshold configurable. (markt)
fix Make pollerSize and maxConnections synonyms for the APR connectors since they perform the same function. (markt)
fix Use maxThreads rather than 10000 as the default maxConnections for the BIO connectors. (markt)
Jasper
fix : Correctly coerce the empty string to zero when used as an operand in EL arithmetic. Patch provided by gbt. (markt)

fix Don't register Contexts that fail to start with the Mapper. (markt)
add : Add initial support for SPNEGO/Kerberos authentication also referred to as integrated Windows authentication. This includes user authentication, authorisation via the directory using the user's delegated credentials and exposing the user's delegated credentials via a request attribute so applications can make use of them to impersonate the current user when accessing third-party systems that use a compatible authentication mechanism. Based on a patch provided by Michael Osipov. (markt)
fix HTTP range requests cannot be reliably served when a Writer is in use so prevent the DefaultServlet from attempting to do so. (kkolinko)
fix Protect the DefaultServlet from Valves, Filters and Wrappers that write content to the response. Prevent partial responses to partial GET requests in this case since the range cannot be reliably determined. Also prevent the DefaultServlet from setting a content length header since this too cannot be reliably determined. (markt)
fix : When wrapping an exception, include the root cause. Patch provided by sebb. (markt)
fix : Fix regression in fix for that called close on a JNDI resource while it was still available to the application. (markt)
