  • Fix: Implement the requirements of RFC 7230 that any HTTP/1.1 request that specifies a host in the request line, must specify the same host in the Host header and that any such request that does not, must be rejected with a 400 response. This check is optional but disabled by default. It may be enabled with the allowHostHeaderMismatch attribute of the Connector. (markt)
  • Fix: Implement the requirements of RFC 7230 that any HTTP/1.1 request that contains multiple Host headers is rejected with a 400 response. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: 61424: Avoid a possible StackOverflowError when running under a SecurityManager and using Subject.doAs(). (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)

  • Fix: Improve the warning message when JSSE and OpenSSL configuration styles are mixed on the same SSLHostConfig. (markt)
  • Fix: 61415: Fix TLS renegotiation with OpenSSL based connections and session caching. (markt)
  • Fix: Delay checking that the configured attributes for an SSLHostConfig instance are consistent with the configured SSL implementation until Connector start to avoid incorrect warnings when the SSL implementation changes during initialisation. (markt)
  • Fix: 61450: Fix default key alias algorithm. (remm)
  • Fix: 61451: Correct a regression in the fix to enable the use of Java key stores that contained multiple keys that did not all have the same password. The regression broke support for any key store that did not store keys in PKCS #8 format such as hardware key stores and Windows key stores. (markt)

WebSocket

  • Fix: 60523: Reduce the number of packets used to send WebSocket messages by not flushing between the header and the payload when the two are written together. (markt)

  • Fix: 61425: Ensure that transaction of idle connection has terminated when the testWhileIdle is set to true and defaultAutoCommit is set to false. Patch provided by WangZheng. (kfujino)

Other

  • Fix: 61439: Remove the Java Annotation API classes from tomcat-embed-core.jar and package them in a separate JAR in the embedded distribution to provide end users with greater flexibility to handle potential conflicts with the JRE and/or other JARs. (markt)
  • Fix: 61441: Improve the detection of JAVA_HOME by the daemon.sh script when running on a platform where Java has been installed from an RPM. (rjung)
  • Update: Update the packaged version of the Tomcat Native Library to 1.2.14 to pick up the latest Windows binaries built with APR 1.6.2 and OpenSSL 1.0.2l. (markt)

  • Fix: 61264: Correct a regression in the refactoring to use Charset rather than String to store request character encoding that prevented getReader() throwing an UnsupportedEncodingException if the user agent specifies an unsupported character encoding. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct a regression in the fix for 49464 that could cause an incorrect Content-Length header to be sent by the DefaultServlet if the encoding of a static is not consistent with the encoding of the response. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: Enable TLS connectors to use Java key stores that contain multiple keys where each key has a separate password. Based on a patch by Frank Taffelt. (markt)

  • Fix: 61229: Correct a regression in 8.5.15 that broke WebDAV handling for resources with names that included a & character. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: Restore the ability to configure support for SSLv3. Enabling this protocol will trigger a warning in the logs since it is known to be insecure. (markt)
  • Fix: Do not log a warning when a null session is returned for an OpenSSL based TLS session since this is expected when session tickets are enabled. (markt)
  • Fix: When the access log valve logs a TLS related request attribute and the NIO2 connector is used with OpenSSL, ensure that the TLS attributes are available to the access log valve when the connection is closing. (markt)
  • Fix: 60461: Sync SSL session access for the APR connector. (remm)
  • Add: To ease migration from 8.0.x to 8.5.x, if the HTTP or AJP BIO connector is explicitly configured, rather than failing to start the connector because BIO has been removed, automatically switch to NIO and continue. A warning will be logged to alert the user to the switch. (markt)

  • Fix: 61154: Allow the Manager and Host Manager web applications to start by default when running under a security manager. This was accomplished by adding a custom permission, org.apache.catalina.security.DeployXmlPermission, that permits an application to use a META-INF/context.xml file and then granting that permission to the Manager and Host Manager. (markt)

General

  • Add: Allow to exclude JUnit test classes using the build property test.exclude and document the property in BUILDING.txt. (rjung)

Catalina

  • Fix: Review those places where Tomcat re-encodes a URI or URI component and ensure that that correct encoding (path differs from query string) is applied and that the encoding is applied consistently. (markt)
  • Fix: Avoid a NullPointerException when reading attributes for a initialised HTTP connector where TLS is enabled. (markt)
  • Fix: Always quote the hostName of an SSLHostConfig element when using it as part of the JMX object name to avoid errors that prevent the associated TLS connector from starting if a wild card hostName is configured (because * is a reserved character for JMX object names). (markt)
  • Code: Switch to using Charset rather than String to store encoding settings (including for configuration and for the Content-Type header) to reduce the number of places the associated Charset needs to be looked up. (markt)
  • Fix: Use a more reliable mechanism for the DefaultServlet when determining if the current request is for custom error page or not. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure that when the Default or WebDAV servlets process an error dispatch that the error resource is processed via the doGet() method irrespective of the method used for the original request that triggered the error. (markt)
  • Fix: If a static custom error page is specified that does not exist or cannot be read, ensure that the intended error status is returned rather than a 404 or 403. (markt)
  • Fix: When the WebDAV servlet is configured and an error dispatch is made to a custom error page located below WEB-INF, ensure that the target error page is displayed rather than a 404 response. (markt)
  • Add: 61047: Add MIME mapping for woff2 fonts in the default web.xml. Patch provided by Justin Williamson. (violetagg)
  • Fix: Correct the logic that selects the encoding to use to decode the query string in the SSIServletExternalResolver so that the useBodyEncodingForURI attribute of the Connector is correctly taken into account. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: When a TrustManager is configured that does not support certificateVerificationDepth only log a warning about that lack of support when certificateVerificationDepth has been explicitly set. (markt)
  • Fix: 60970: Extend the fix for large headers to push requests. (markt)
  • Fix: Do not include a Date header in HTTP/2 responses with status codes less than 200. (markt)

Jasper

  • Fix: When no BOM is present and an encoding is detected, do not skip the bytes used to detect the encoding since they are not part of a BOM. (markt)
  • Update: 61057: Update to Eclipse JDT Compiler 4.6.3. (violetagg)
  • Fix: 61065: Ensure that once the class is resolved by javax.el.ImportHandler#resolveClass it will be cached with the proper name. (violetagg)

WebSocket

  • Add: Refactor the code that implements the requirement that a call to complete() or dispatch() made from a non-container thread before the container initiated thread that called startAsync() completes must be delayed until the container initiated thread has completed. Rather than implementing this by blocking the non-container thread, extend the internal state machine to track this. This removes the possibility that blocking the non-container thread could trigger a deadlock. (markt)
  • Fix: Fail earlier if the client closes the connection during SNI processing. (markt)
  • Fix: 60123: Avoid potential threading issues that could cause excessively large vales to be returned for the processing time of a current request. (markt)

  • Update: Change the default of the sessionCookiePathUsesTrailingSlash attribute of the Context element to false since the problems caused when a Servlet is mapped to /* are more significant than the security risk of not enabling this option by default. (markt)
  • Fix: Follow-up to 59655. Improve the documentation for configuring permitted cookie names. Patch provided by Kyohei Nakamura. (markt)
  • Fix: Do not attempt to start web resources during a web application's initialisation phase since the web application is not fully configured at that point and the web resources may not be correctly configured. (markt)

  • Fix: Improve error handling around user code prior to calling InstanceManager.destroy() to ensure that the method is executed. (markt)

Jasper

  • Fix: Improve error handling around user code prior to calling InstanceManager.destroy() to ensure that the method is executed. (markt)

  • Fix: 59774: Correct the prefix values in the documented examples for configuring the AccessLogValve. Patch provided by Mike Noordermeer. (markt)

Extras

  • Code: 58588: Remove the JULI extras package from the distribution. It was only useful for switching Tomcat's internal logging to log4j 1.2.x and that version of log4j is no longer supported. No additional Tomcat code is required if switching Tomcat's internal logging to log via log4j 2.x. (markt)

Tribes

  • Code: Use UTF-8 with a standard prolog for all XML files. (markt)

2016-06-13 Tomcat 8.5.3 (markt)

Catalina

  • Fix: RMI Target related memory leaks are avoidable which makes them an application bug that needs to be fixed rather than a JRE bug to work around. Therefore, start logging RMI Target related memory leaks on web application stop. Add an option that controls if the check for these leaks is made. Log a warning if running on Java 9 with this check enabled but without the command line option it requires. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure NPE will not be thrown during deployment when scanning jar files without MANIFEST.MF file. (violetagg)
  • Code: Remove the clearReferencesStatic option from StandardContext. It was known to cause problems with some libraries (such as log4j) and was only linked to suspected memory leaks rather than known memory leaks. It had been disabled by default with no increase in the reports of memory leaks for some time. (markt)
  • Fix: 59604: Correct the assumption made in the URL decoding that the default platform encoding is always compatible with ISO-8859-1. This assumption is not always valid, e.g. on z/OS. (markt)

  • Fix: 59564: Correct offset when reading into HTTP/2 input buffer that could cause problems reading request bodies. (violetagg/markt)
  • Fix: Modify the handling of read/write timeouts so that the appropriate error handling (ReadListener.onError(), WriteListener.onError() or AsyncListener.onError()) is called. (markt)
  • Fix: If an async dispatch results in the completion of request processing, ensure that any remaining request body is swallowed before starting the processing of the next request else the remaining body may be read as the start of the next request leading to a 400 response. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix a cause of multiple attempts to close the same socket. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: Align cipher configuration parsing with current OpenSSL master. (markt)
  • Update: Change the default for honorCipherOrder to false. With the current default TLS configuration, it is no longer necessary for this to be true for a reasonably secure configuration. (markt)
  • Add: Add a new environment variable JSSE_OPTS that is intended to be used to pass JVM wide configuration to the JSSE implementation. The default value is -Djdk.tls.ephemeralDHKeySize=2048 which protects against weak Diffie-Hellman keys. (markt)
  • Fix: When running on Java 7, exclude DHE ciphers from the default cipher list for JSSE connectors since they use weak 768 bit DH keys and cannot be configured to use more secure keys. (markt)
  • Fix: 58970: Fix a connection counting bug in the NIO connector that meant some dropped connections were not removed from the current connection count. (markt)

  • Add: Add get/set method for the channel that is related to each Channel services. (kfujino)
  • Add: Add name to channel in order to identify channels. In tomcat cluster environment, it is set the cluster name + "-Channel" as default value. (kfujino)
  • Add: Add the channel name to the thread which is invoked by channel services in order to identify the associated channel. (kfujino)
  • Fix: Ensure that clear the channel instance from channel services when stopping channel. (kfujino)
  • Add: Implement map state in the replication map. (kfujino)
  • Fix: Ensure that the ping is not executed during the start/stop of the replication map. (kfujino)
  • Fix: In ping processing in the replication map, send not the INIT message but the newly introduced PING message. (kfujino)

Other

  • Fix: 59209: Remove honorCipherOrder=false attribute from the connector example in server.xml. When the block is uncommented the connector will use the default value for this attribute which is false. If one needs to enable it, one can add it explicitly to the connector definition. Use of this feature requires Java 8 or later. Patch is provided by Huxing Zhang. (violetagg)
  • Fix: 59211: Add hamcrest to Eclipse classpath. Patch is provided by Huxing Zhang. (violetagg)
  • Update: 59280: Update the NSIS Installer used to build the Windows Installers to version 2.51. (kkolinko)
  • Update: Update the packaged version of the Tomcat Native Library to 1.2.7 to pick up the Windows binaries that are based on OpenSSL 1.0.2h and APR 1.5.2. (markt)

2016-03-24 Tomcat 8.5.0 (markt)

General

  • Update: Remove support for Comet. (markt)
  • Update: Tighten up the default file permissions for the .tar.gz distribution so no files or directories are world readable by default. Configure Tomcat to run with a default umask of 0027 which may be overridden by setting UMASK in setenv.sh. (markt)
  • Update: Remove native code (Windows Service Wrapper, APR/native connector) support for Windows Itanium. (markt)

Catalina

  • Update: The default HTTP cookie parser has been changed to org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Rfc6265CookieProcessor. (markt)
  • 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: 58351: Make the server build date and server version number accessible via JMX. Patch provided by Huxing Zhang. (markt)
  • 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: Add the StatusManagerServlet to the list of Servlets that can only be loaded by privileged applications. (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: 58768: Log a warning if a redirect fails because of an invalid location. (markt)
  • Code: 58827: Remove remains of JSR-77 implementation. (markt)
  • 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)
  • Fix: Protect initialization of ResourceLinkFactory when running with a SecurityManager. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: Correct a thread safety issue in the filtering of session attributes based on the implementing class name of the value object. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix class loader decision on the delegation for class loading and resource lookup and make it faster too. (rjung)
  • Fix: 58905: Ensure that Tomcat.silence() silences the correct logger and respects the current setting. (markt)
  • Fix: 58946: Ensure that the request parameter map remains immutable when processing via a RequestDispatcher. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure that /WEB-INF/classes is never processed as a web fragment. (markt)
  • Update: Switch default connector when native is installed. Unless configured otherwise, the NIO endpoint will be used by default. If SSL is configured, OpenSSL will be used rather than JSSE. (remm)
  • Fix: Correct a regression in the fix for 58867. When configuring a Context to use an external directory for the docBase, and that directory happens to be located along side the original WAR, use the directory as the docBase rather than expanding the WAR into the appBase and using the newly created expanded directory as the docBase. (markt)
  • Add: 58988: Special characters in the substitutions for the RewriteValve can now be quoted with a backslash. (fschumacher)
  • Fix: 58999: Fix class and resource name filtering in WebappClassLoader. It throws a StringIndexOutOfBoundsException if the name is exactly "org" or "javax". (rjung)
  • Add: Add JASPIC (JSR-196) support. (markt)
  • Add: Make checking for var and map replacement in RewriteValve a bit stricter and correct detection of colon in var replacement. (fschumacher)
  • Fix: Refactor the web application class loader to reduce the impact of JAR scanning on the memory footprint of the web application. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix some resource leaks in the error handling for accessing files from JARs and WARs. (markt)
  • Fix: Refactor the JAR and JAR-in-WAR resource handling to reduce the memory footprint of the web application. (markt)
  • Fix: Refactor the web.xml parsing so a new parser is created every time the web application starts rather than creating and caching the parser when the Context is created. This enables the parser to take account of modified Context configuration parameters and reduces (slightly) the memory footprint of a running Tomcat instance. (markt)
  • Update: Switch the web application class loader to the ParallelWebappClassLoader by default. (markt)
  • Fix: 57809: Remove the custom context attribute that held the effective web.xml. Components needing access to configuration information may access it via the Servlet API. (markt)
  • Fix: Refactor JAR scanning to reduce memory footprint. (markt)
  • Fix: 59001: Correctly handle the case when Tomcat is installed on a path where one of the segments ends in an exclamation mark. (markt)
  • Fix: Expand the fix for 59001 to cover the special sequences used in Tomcat's custom jar:war: URLs. (markt)
  • Fix: 59043: Avoid warning while expiring sessions associated with a single sign on if HttpServletRequest.logout() is used. (markt)
  • Fix: 59054: Ensure that using the CrawlerSessionManagerValve in a distributed environment does not trigger an error when the Valve registers itself in the session. (markt)
  • Fix: Add socket properties support to storeconfig. (remm)
  • Fix: Fix incorrect parsing of the NE and NC flags in rewrite rules. (remm)
  • Fix: 59065: Correct the timing of the check for colons in paths on non-Windows systems implemented in catalina.sh so it works correctly with Cygwin. Patch provided by Ed Randall. (markt)
  • Fix: When a Host is configured with an appBase that does not exist, create the appBase before trying to expand an external WAR file into it. (markt)
  • Fix: 59115: When using the Servlet 3.0 file upload, the submitted file name may be provided as a token or a quoted-string. If a quoted-string, unquote the string before returning it to the user. (markt)
  • Fix: 59123: Close NamingEnumeration objects used by the JNDIRealm once they are no longer required. (fschumacher/markt)
  • Add: Implement the proposed Servlet 4.0 API to provide mapping type information for the current request. (markt)
  • Fix: 59138: Correct a false positive warning for ThreadLocal related memory leaks when the key class but not the value class has been loaded by the web application class loader. (markt)
  • Add: 59017: Make the pre-compressed file support in the Default Servlet generic so any compression may be used rather than just gzip. Patch provided by Mikko Tiihonen. (markt)
  • Fix: 59145: Don't log an invalid warning when a user logs out of a session associated with SSO. (markt)
  • Fix: 59150: Add an additional flag on APR listener to allow disabling automatic use of OpenSSL. (remm)
  • Fix: 59151: Fix a regression in the fix for 56917 that added additional (and arguably unnecessary) validation to the provided redirect location. (markt)
  • Fix: 59154: Fix a NullPointerException in the JAASMemoryLoginModule resulting from the introduction of the CredentialHandler to Realms. (schultz/markt)

Coyote

  • Update: Remove support for the HTTP BIO and AJP BIO connectors. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor HTTP upgrade and AJP implementations to reduce duplication. (markt)
  • Add: Add support for HPACK header encoding and decoding, contributed by Stuart Douglas. (remm)
  • Add: 57108: Add support for Server Name Indication (SNI). There has been significant changes to the SSL configuration in server.xml to support this. (markt)
  • Add: Add SSL engine for JSSE backed by OpenSSL. Includes ALPN support. Based on code contributed by Numa de Montmollin and derived from code developed by Twitter and Netty. (remm)
  • Fix: RFC 7230 states that clients should ignore reason phrases in HTTP/1.1 response messages. Since the reason phrase is optional, Tomcat no longer sends it. As a result the system property org.apache.coyote.USE_CUSTOM_STATUS_MSG_IN_HEADER is no longer used and has been removed. (markt)
  • Update: The minimum required Tomcat Native version has been increased to 1.2.2. The 1.2.x branch includes ALPN and SNI support which are required for HTTP/2. (markt)
  • Add: Add support for HTTP/2 including server push. (markt)
  • 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)

  • Fix: Correct an NPE when listing the enabled ciphers (e.g. via the Manager web application) for a TLS enabled APR/native connector. (markt)
  • Add: New configuration option ajpFlush for the AJP connectors to disable the sending of AJP flush packets. (rjung)
  • Fix: Handle the case in the NIO connector where the required TLS buffer sizes increase after the connection has been initiated. (markt)
  • Fix: Handle the case in the NIO2 connector where the required TLS buffer sizes increase after the connection has been initiated. (markt/remm)
  • Fix: Bad processing of handshake errors in NIO2. (remm)
  • Fix: Use JSSE session configuration options with OpenSSL. (remm)
  • Fix: 59015: Fix potential cause of endless APR Poller loop during shutdown if the Poller experiences an error during the shutdown process. (markt)
  • Fix: Align cipher aliases for kECDHE and ECDHE with the current OpenSSL implementation. (markt)

  • Fix: Fix potential integer overflow in DeltaSession. Reported by coverity scan. (fschumacher)
  • Fix: In order to avoid that the heartbeat thread and the background thread to run Channel.heartbeat simultaneously, if heartbeatBackgroundEnabled of SimpleTcpCluster set to true, ensure that the heartbeat thread does not start. (kfujino)

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: 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)
  • Fix: 58624: Correct a potential deadlock if the WebSocket connection is closed when a message write is in progress. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix a timing issue on session close that could result in an exception being thrown for an incomplete message even through the message was completed. (markt)
  • Fix: Correctly handle compression of partial messages when the final message fragment has a zero length payload. (markt)
  • Fix: 59119: Correct read logic for WebSocket client when using secure connections. (markt)
  • Fix: 59134: Correct client connect logic for secure connections made through a proxy. (markt)

  • Fix: Don't create session unnecessarily in the Host Manager application. (markt)
  • Fix: 58723: Clarify documentation and error messages for the text interface of the manager to make clear that version must be used with path when referencing contexts deployed using parallel deployment. (markt)
  • Add: Document test.threads option in BUILDING.txt. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: Correct an error in the documentation of the expected behaviour for automatic deployment. If a WAR is updated and an expanded directory is present, the directory will always be deleted and recreated by expanding the WAR if unpackWARs is true. (markt)
  • Fix: 58935: Remove incorrect references in the documentation to using jar:file: URLs with the Manager application. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct the description of the ServletRequest.getServerPort() in Proxy How-To. Issue reported via comments.apache.org. (violetagg)
  • Add: The Manager and Host Manager applications are now only accessible via localhost by default. (markt)

Other

  • Add: Allow to configure multiple JUnit test class patterns with the build property test.name and document the property in BUILDING.txt. (rjung)
  • Add: Support the use of the threads attribute on Ant's junit task. Note that using this with a value of greater than one will disable Cobertura code coverage. (markt)
  • Update: Update optional Checkstyle library to 6.14.1. (kkolinko)
  • Update: Update the packaged version of the Tomcat Native Library to 1.2.4 to pick up the Windows binaries that are based on OpenSSL 1.0.2e and APR 1.5.1. (markt)
