I can't help you but to add weight to this, I have a similar and frequent
problem in 3.1.5 GPL which is an issue each time I restart the container.
I have a servlet mapped to the "root" of the Web server - i.e. it is
supposed to execute just like a welcome page for:
I can't use the servlet-mapping of "/" since that's defined in Java EE as
the "default servlet" and will execute for *every* request to an otherwise
unmatched URL, which isn't what I want. I just want the servlet to handle
requests for the root.
The "obvious" thing in Resin is to add a <servlet-mapping> with a
<servlet-mapping url-regexp="^/?$" servlet-name="MyServlet" />
This worked for a while, until a restart. It then gave a 404 even after
several reloads, restarts and a full stop and start. So I changed it to
url-regexp="^/index.html$" which again worked, until another restart (weeks
later) - I also couldn't then revert back to "^/?$" as the pattern as that
still gave 404. Finally I'm left using "^/index.jsp$" as my pattern since
that is what's working since the last restart. So definitely something
weird going on with those index page mappings.
I am using Resin with mod_caucho for an Apache 2 front end. I imagine
mod_caucho might be causing the issues with patterns still giving 404s even
after a complete restart of Resin? I guess also mod_caucho may be the main
culprit in all this, though that's a (far from educated) guess.
