  • Fix: 62177: Correct two protocol errors with HTTP/2 PUSH_PROMISE frames. Firstly, the HTTP/2 protocol only permits pushes to be sent on peer initiated requests. Secondly, pushes must be sent in order of increasing stream ID. These restriction were not being enforced leading to protocol errors at the client. (markt)

Web applications

  • Add: Add document for FragmentationInterceptor. (kfujino)
  • Add: Document how the roles for an authenticated user are determined when the CombinedRealm is used. (markt)

2018-03-08 Tomcat 9.0.6 (markt)

Catalina

  • Fix: 43866: Add additional attributes to the Manager to provide control over which listeners are called when an attribute is added to the session when it has already been added under the same name. This is to aid clustering scenarios where setAttribute() is often called to signal that the attribute value has been mutated and needs to be replicated but it may not be required, or even desired, for the associated listeners to be triggered. The default behaviour has not been changed. (markt)
  • Fix: Minor optimization when calling class transformers. (rjung)
  • Add: Pass errors triggered by invalid requests or unavailable services to the application provided error handling and/or the container provided error handling (ErrorReportValve) as appropriate. (markt)

  • Fix: 62123: Avoid ConcurrentModificationException when attempting to clean up application triggered RMI memory leaks on web application stop. (markt)
  • Add: When a deployment descriptor is deployed that includes a path attribute, log a warning that the path attribute will be ignored. (markt)
  • Add: When a deployment descriptor is deployed that references an external docBase and, as a result, a docBase under the appBase will be ignored, log a warning. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct a regression in the fix for 60276 that meant that compression was applied to all MIME types. Patch provided by Stefan Knoblich. (markt)

Coyote

  • Add: Add async HTTP/2 parser for NIO2. (remm)
  • Fix: Add minor HPACK fixes, based on fixes by Stuart Douglas. (remm)

2018-02-11 Tomcat 9.0.5 (markt)

Catalina

  • Fix: Prevent a stack trace being written to standard out when running on Java 10 due to changes in the LogManager implementation. (markt)
  • Fix: Avoid duplicate load attempts if one has been made already. (remm)
  • Fix: Avoid NPE in ThreadLocalLeakPreventionListener if there is no Engine. (remm)
  • Fix: 62000: When a JNDI reference cannot be resolved, ensure that the root cause exception is reported rather than swallowed. (markt)
  • Fix: 62036: When caching an authenticated user Principal in the session when the web application is configured with the NonLoginAuthenticator, cache the internal Principal object rather than the user facing Principal object as Tomcat requires the internal object to correctly process later authorization checks. (markt)
  • Add: Refactor error handling to enable errors that occur before processing is passed to the application to be handled by the application provided error handling and/or the container provided error handling (ErrorReportValve) as appropriate. (markt)
  • Add: Pass 404 errors triggered by a missing ROOT web application to the container error handling to generate the response body. (markt)
  • Add: Pass 400 errors triggered by invalid request targets to the container error handling to generate the response body. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: 61751: Fix truncated request input streams when using NIO2 with TLS. (markt)
  • Fix: 62023: Log error reporting multiple SSLHostConfig elements when using the APR Connector instead of crashing Tomcat. (csutherl)
  • Fix: 62032: Fix NullPointerException when certificateFile is not defined on an SSLHostConfig and unify the behavior when a certificateFile is defined but the file does not exist for both JKS and PEM file types. (csutherl)
  • Fix: Ensure that the toString() method behaves consistently for ByteChunk and CharChunk and that null is returned when toString() is called both on newly created objects and immediately after a call to recycle(). This should not impact typical Tomcat users. It may impact users who use these classes directly in their own code. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure that the toString(), toBytes() and toChars() methods of MessageBytes behave consistently and do not throw a NullPointerException both on newly created objects and immediately after a call to recycle(). This should not impact typical Tomcat users. It may impact users who use these classes directly in their own code. (markt)
  • Fix: When processing an HTTP 1.0 request in the HTTP connector and no host information is provided in the request, obtain the server port from the local port rather than the connector configuration since the configured value maybe zero. (markt)
  • Add: Enable strict validation of the provided host name and port for all connectors. Requests with invalid host names and/or ports will be rejected with a 400 response. (markt)
  • Fix: Update the host validation to permit host names and components of domain names (excluding top-level domains) to start with a number and to ensure that top-level domains are fully alphabetic. (markt)
  • Fix: 62053: Fix NPE when writing push headers with HTTP/2 NIO2. Patch submitted by Holger Sunke. (remm)

Jasper

  • Fix: Include an HTTP Allow header when a JSP generates a 405 response due to a request with an unsupported method. (markt)
  • Add: Add support for the HTTP OPTION method to JSPs. The JSP specification explicitly states that the behaviour for this method is undefined for JSPs so this is a Tomcat specific behaviour. (markt)

WebSocket

  • Fix: Minor HTTP/2 push fixes. (remm)
  • Fix: 61916: Extend the AddDefaultCharsetFilter to add a character set when the content type is set via setHeader() or addHeader() as well as when it is set via setContentType(). (markt)
  • Fix: When using WebDAV to copy a file resource to a destination that requires a collection to be overwritten, ensure that the operation succeeds rather than fails (with a 500 response). This enables Tomcat to pass two additional tests from the Litmus WebDAV test suite. (markt)
  • Update: Modify the Default and WebDAV Servlets so that a 405 status code is returned for PUT and DELETE requests when disabled via the readonly initialisation parameter.
  • Fix: Align the contents of the Allow header with the response code for the Default and WebDAV Servlets. For any given resource a method that returns a 405 status code will not be listed in the Allow header and a method listed in the Allow header will not return a 405 status code. (markt)

Coyote

  • Update: The minimum required Tomcat Native version has been increased to 1.2.14. This version includes a new API needed for correct client certificate support when using a Java connector with OpenSSL TLS implementation and support for the SSL_CONF OpenSSL API. (rjung)
  • Add: Add support for the OpenSSL SSL_CONF API when using TLS with OpenSSL implementation. It can be used by adding OpenSSLConf elements underneath SSLHostConfig. The new element contains a list of OpenSSLConfCmd elements, each with the attributes name and value. (rjung)
  • Fix: When using a Java connector in combination with the OpenSSL TLS implementation, do not configure each SSL connection object via the OpenSSLEngine. For OpenSSL the SSL object inherits its settings from the SSL_CTX which we have already configured. (rjung)
  • Fix: When using JSSE TLS configuration with the OpenSSL implementation and client certificates: include client CA subjects in the TLS handshake so that the client can choose an appropriate client certificate to present. (rjung)
  • Fix: If an invalid option is specified for the certificateVerification attribute of an SSLHostConfig element, treat it as required which is the most secure / restrictive option in addition to reporting the configuration error. (markt)
  • Fix: Improve the handling of client disconnections during the TLS renegotiation handshake. (markt)

URL protocol to refer to WAR files and their contents rather than the standard jar:file:... form since some components of the JRE, such as JAR verification, give unexpected results when the standard form is used. A side-effect of the refactoring is that when using packed WARs, it is now possible to reference a WAR and/or specific JARs within a WAR in the security policy file used when running under a SecurityManager.

not released Tomcat 9.0.0.M2 (markt)

Catalina

  • Code: Refactor creation of MapperListener to ensure that the Mapper used is the Mapper associated with the Service for which the listener was created. (markt)
  • Add: Move the functionality that provides redirects for context roots and directories where a trailing / is added from the Mapper to the DefaultServlet. This enables such requests to be processed by any configured Valves and Filters before the redirect is made. This behaviour is configurable via the mapperContextRootRedirectEnabled and mapperDirectoryRedirectEnabled attributes of the Context which may be used to restore the previous behaviour. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor Service.getContainer() to return an Engine rather than a Container. (markt)
  • Fix: 34319: Only load those keys in StoreBase.processExpire from JDBCStore, that are old enough, to be expired. Based on a patch by Tom Anderson. (fschumacher)
  • Add: 56917: As per RFC7231 (HTTP/1.1), allow HTTP/1.1 and later redirects to use relative URIs. This is controlled by a new attribute useRelativeRedirects on the Context and defaults to true. (markt)
  • Fix: 58629: Allow an embedded Tomcat instance to start when the Service has no Engine configured. (markt)
  • Fix: Correctly notify the MapperListener associated with a Service if the Engine for that Service is changed. (markt)
  • Add: Make a web application's CredentialHandler available through a context attribute. This allows a web application to use the same algorithm for validating or generating new stored credentials from cleartext ones. (schultz)
  • Fix: 58635: Enable break points to be set within agent code when running Tomcat with a Java agent. Based on a patch by Huxing Zhang. (markt)
  • Fix: Fixed potential NPE in HostConfig while deploying an application. Issue reported by coverity scan. (violetagg)
  • Fix: 58655: Fix an IllegalStateException when calling HttpServletResponse.sendRedirect() with the RemoteIpFilter. This was caused by trying to correctly generate the absolute URI for the redirect. With the fix for 56917, redirects may now be relative making the sendRedirect() implementation for the RemoteIpFilter much simpler. This also addresses issues where the redirect may not have behaved as expected when redirecting from http to https to from https to http. (markt)
  • Fix: 58657: Exceptions in a Servlet 3.1 ReadListener or WriteListener do not need to be immediately fatal to the connection. Allow an error response to be written. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct implementation of validateClientProvidedNewSessionId so client provided session IDs may be rejected if validation is enabled. (markt)
  • Fix: 58701: Reset the instanceInitialized field in StandardWrapper when unloading a Servlet so that a new instance may be correctly initialized. (markt)
  • Update: Add a new flag aprPreferred to the Apr listener. if set to false, when using the connector defaults, it will use NIO + OpenSSL if tomcat-native is available, rather than the APR connector. (remm)
  • Fix: Add path parameter handling to HttpServletRequest.getContextPath(). This is a follow-up to the fix for 57215. (markt)
  • Fix: 58692: Make StandardJarScanner more robust. Log a warning if a class path entry cannot be scanned rather than triggering the failure of the web application. Includes a test case written by Derek Abdine. (markt)
  • Fix: 58702: Ensure an access log entry is generated if the client aborts the connection. (markt)
  • Fix: Fixed various issues reported by Findbugs. (violetagg)
  • Fix: 58735: Add support for the X-XSS-Protection header to the HttpHeaderSecurityFilter. Patch provided by Jacopo Cappellato. (markt)

  • Fix: Simplify code and fix messages in org.apache.catalina.core.DefaultInstanceManager class. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: 58751: Correctly handle the case where an AsyncListener dispatches to a Servlet on an asynchronous timeout and the Servlet uses sendError() to trigger an error page. Includes a test case based on code provided by Andy Wilkinson.(markt)
  • Fix: Ensure that the proper file encoding if specified will be used when a readme file is served by DefaultServlet. (violetagg)
  • Fix: Fix declaration of localPort attribute of Connector MBean: it is read-only. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: 58766: Make skipping non-class files during annotation scanning faster by checking the file name first. Improve debug logging. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: 58836: Correctly merge query string parameters when processing a forwarded request where the target includes a query string that contains a parameter with no value. (markt/kkolinko)
  • Fix: Make sure that shared Digester is reset in an unlikely error case in HostConfig.deployWAR(). (kkolinko)
  • Add: Extend the feature available in the cluster session manager implementations that enables session attribute replication to be filtered based on attribute name to all session manager implementations. Note that configuration attribute name has changed from sessionAttributeFilter to sessionAttributeNameFilter. Apply the filter on load as well as unload to ensure that configuration changes made while the web application is stopped are applied to any persisted data. (markt)
  • Add: Extend the session attribute filtering options to include filtering based on the implementation class of the value and optional WARN level logging if an attribute is filtered. These options are available for all of the Manager implementations that ship with Tomcat. When a SecurityManager is used filtering will be enabled by default. (markt)
  • Code: Remove distributable and maxInactiveInterval from the Manager interface because the attributes are never used. The equivalent attributes from the Context always take precedence. (markt)
  • Fix: 58867: Improve checking on Host start for WAR files that have been modified while Tomcat has stopped and re-expand them if unpackWARs is true. (markt)
  • Fix: 58900: Correctly undeploy symlinked resources and prevent an infinite cycle of deploy / undeploy. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: 58621: The certificate chain cannot be set using the main certificate attribute, so restore the certificate chain property. (remm)
  • Fix: Allow a new SSL config type where a connector can use either JSSE or OpenSSL. Both could be allowed, but it would likely create support issues. This type is used by the OpenSSL implementation for NIOx. (remm)
  • Fix: Improve upgrade context classloader handling by using Context.bind and unbind. (remm)
  • Add: Improve OpenSSL keystore/truststore configuration by using the code from the JSSE implementation. (remm, jfclere)

WebSocket

  • Add: 55006: The WebSocket client now honors the java.net.java.net.ProxySelector configuration (using the HTTP type) when establishing WebSocket connections to servers. Based on a patch by Niki Dokovski. (markt)
  • Fix: 58624: Correct a potential deadlock if the WebSocket connection is closed when a message write is in progress. (markt)
  • Fix: 57489: Ensure onClose() is called when a WebSocket connection is closed even if the sending of the close message fails. Includes test cases by Barry Coughlan. (markt)

  • Add: Document test.threads option in BUILDING.txt. (kkolinko)

Tribes

  • Fix: Ensure that the static member is registered to the add suspect list even if the static member that is registered to the remove suspect list has disappeared. (kfujino)
  • Fix: When using a static cluster, add the members that have been cached in the membership service to the map members list in order to ensure that the map member is a static member. (kfujino)
  • Fix: Add support for the startup notification of local members in the static cluster. (kfujino)
  • Fix: Ignore the unnecessary member remove operation from different domain. (kfujino)
  • Fix: Add support for the shutdown notification of local members in the static cluster. (kfujino)

General

  • Add: Make Java 8 the minimum required version to build and run Tomcat 9. (markt)
  • Update: Remove support for Comet. (markt)
