Samuel, Resin isn't really smart enough to make up random binary content, so I would try to identify what that binary content and then hope to locate a source of it (a file, a servlet, whatever).
Are you using filters by any chance? This is a leap, but it seems like this is a servlet spec interpretation/implementation difference (or an implementation of something not clear in the spec). The most common thing I've seen with Resin and Tomcat is how filters are handled. But I would try to identify what that binary content is... maybe it's an ad from a hacked program for all we know... but I think identifying that will give clues as to what could be inserting it. -- Serge Knystautas Lokitech >> software . strategy . design >> http://www.lokitech.com p. 301.656.5501 e.
