Changelog

in development Tomcat 10.1.23 (schultz)

Catalina

  • Update: Deprecate and remove sessionCounter (replaced by the addition of the active session count and the expired session count, as a reasonable approximation) and duplicates (which does not represent a possible event in current implementations) statistics from the session manager. (remm)
  • Fix: 68890 Align output encoding of JSPs in the Manager webapp with the XML declarations in those same files. (schultz)
  • Fix: Update Basic authentication to implement the requirements of RFC 7617 including the changing of the trimCredentials setting which is now defaults to false. Note that the trimCredentials setting will be removed in Tomcat 11. (markt)
  • Add: Small performance optimization when logging cookies with no values. (schultz)
  • Fix: Correct error handling for asynchronous requests. If the application performs an dispatch during AsyncListener.onError() the dispatch is now performed rather than completing the request using the error page mechanism. (markt)
  • Add: Re-factor ElapsedTimeElement in AbstractAccessLogValve to use a customizable style. (schultz)

Coyote

  • Fix: Fix bnd jar descriptor to include the OpenSSL FFM support. (remm)
  • Fix: Add OpenSSL FFM classes to tomcat-embed-core.jar. (remm)
  • Fix: Align non-secure and secure writes with NIO and skip the write attempt when there are no bytes to be written. (markt)
  • Fix: Allow any positive value for socket.unlockTimeout. If a negative or zero value is configured, the default of 250ms will be used. (mark)
  • Fix: Reduce the time spent waiting for the connector to unlock. The previous default of 10s was noticeably too long for cases where the unlock has failed. The wait time is now 100ms plus twice socket.unlockTimeout. (markt)

Other

  • Update: Switch to using the Base64 encoder and decoder provided by the JRE rather than the version provided by Commons Codec. The internal fork of Commons Codec has been deprecated and will be removed in Tomcat 11. (markt)

not released Tomcat 10.1.22 (schultz)

Other

  • Fix: Release re-built using correct JDK version.

not released Tomcat 10.1.21 (schultz)

Catalina

  • Fix: Change the thread-safety mechanism for protecting StandardServer.services from a simple synchronized lock to a ReentrantReadWriteLock to allow multiple readers to operate simultaneously. Based upon a suggestion by Markus Wolfe. (schultz)
  • Fix: Improve Service connectors, Container children and Service executors access sync using a ReentrantReadWriteLock. (remm)
  • Fix: Improve handling of integer overflow if an attempt is made to upload a file via the Servlet API and the file is larger than Integer.MAX_VALUE. (markt)
  • Fix: 68862: Handle possible response commit when processing read errors. (remm)

Coyote

  • Add: Add OpenSSL integration using the FFM API rather than Tomcat Native. OpenSSL support may be enabled by adding the org.apache.catalina.core.OpenSSLLifecycleListener listener on the Server element when using Java 22 or later. (remm)

Other

  • Update: Update the internal fork of Apache Commons BCEL to 6.8.2. (markt)
  • Update: Update the internal fork of Apache Commons Codec to 1.16.1. (markt)

2024-03-25 Tomcat 10.1.20 (schultz)

Catalina

  • Fix: Minor performance improvement for building filter chains. Based on ideas from #702 by Luke Miao. (remm)
  • Fix: Align error handling for Writer and OutputStream. Ensure use of either once the response has been recycled triggers a NullPointerException provided that discardFacades is configured with the default value of true. (markt)
  • Fix: 68692: The standard thread pool implementations that are configured using the Executor element now implement ExecutorService for better support NIO2. (remm)
  • Fix: 68495: When restoring a saved POST request after a successful FORM authentication, ensure that neither the URI, the query string nor the protocol are corrupted when restoring the request body. (markt)
  • Fix: After forwarding a request, attempt to unwrap the response in order to suspend it, instead of simply closing it if it was wrapped. Add a new suspendWrappedResponseAfterForward boolean attribute on Context to control the bahavior, defaulting to false. (remm)
  • Fix: 68721: Workaround a possible cause of duplicate class definitions when using ClassFileTransformers and the transformation of a class also triggers the loading of the same class. (markt)
  • Fix: The rewrite valve should not do a rewrite if the output is identical to the input. (remm)
  • Update: Add a new valveSkip (or VS) rule flag to the rewrite valve to allow skipping over the next valve in the Catalina pipeline. (remm)
  • Update: Add highConcurrencyStatus attribute to the SemaphoreValve to optionally allow the valve to return an error status code to the client when a permit cannot be acquired from the semaphore. (remm)
  • Add: Add checking of the "age" of the running Tomcat instance since its build-date to the SecurityListener, and log a warning if the server is old. (schultz)
  • Fix: When using the AsyncContext, throw an IllegalStateException, rather than allowing an NullPointerException, if an attempt is made to use the AsyncContext after it has been recycled. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: Improve the HTTP/2 stream prioritisation process. If a stream uses all of the connection windows and still has content to write, it will now be added to the backlog immediately rather than waiting until the write attempt for the remaining content. (markt)
  • Fix: Add threadsMaxIdleTime attribute to the endpoint, to allow configuring the amount of time before an internal executor will scale back to the configured minSpareThreads size. (remm)
  • Fix: Correct a regression in the support for user provided SSLContext instances that broke the org.apache.catalina.security.TLSCertificateReloadListener. (markt)

Jasper

  • Add: Add support for specifying Java 22 (with the value 22) as the compiler source and/or compiler target for JSP compilation. If used with an Eclipse JDT compiler version that does not support these values, a warning will be logged and the default will used. (markt)
  • Fix: Handle the case where the JSP engine forwards a request/response to a Servlet that uses an OutputStream rather than a Writer. This was triggering an IllegalStateException on code paths where there was a subsequent attempt to obtain a Writer. (markt)
  • Fix: Correctly handle the case where a tag library is packaged in a JAR file and the web application is deployed as a WAR file rather than an unpacked directory. (markt)
  • Fix: Prevent the web application's ClassLoader from being pinned by the JSP compiler if an application uses a custom XMLInputFactory. Based upon a suggestion from Simon Niederberger. (schultz)

Cluster

  • Fix: Avoid updating request count stats on async. (remm)

Other

  • Add: Improvements to French translations. (remm)
  • Add: Improvements to Japanese translations by tak7iji. (markt)

  • Update: Update Checkstyle to 10.14.1. (markt)

2024-02-19 Tomcat 10.1.19 (schultz)

Catalina

  • Fix: Correct JPMS and OSGi meta-data for tomcat-embed-core.jar by removing reference to org.apache.catalina.ssi package that is no longer included in the JAR. Based on pull request #684 by Jendrik Johannes. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix ServiceBindingPropertySource so that trailing \r\n sequences are correctly removed from files containing property values when configured to do so. Bug identified by Coverity Scan. (markt)
  • Add: Add improvements to the CSRF prevention filter including the ability to skip adding nonces for resource name and subtree URL patterns. (schultz)

  • Fix: 68559: Allow asynchronous error handling to write to the response after an error during asynchronous processing. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: Setting a null value for a cookie attribute should remove the attribute. (markt)
  • Fix: Make asynchronous error handling more robust. Ensure that once a connection is marked to be closed, further asynchronous processing cannot change that. (markt)
  • Fix: Make asynchronous error handling more robust. Ensure that once the call to AsyncListener.onError() has returned to the container, only container threads can access the AsyncContext. This protects against various race conditions that woudl otherwise occur if application threads continued to access the AsyncContext.
  • Fix: Review usage of debug logging and downgrade trace or data dumping operations from debug level to trace. In particular, most of the HTTP/2 debug logging has been changed to trace level. (remm)
  • Fix: Add support for user provided SSLContext instances configured on SSLHostConfigCertificate instances. Based on pull request #673 provided by Hakan Altındağ. (markt)
  • Fix: Partial fix for 68558: Cache the result of converting to String for request URI, HTTP header names and the request Content-Type value to improve performance by reducing repeated byte[] to String conversions. (markt)
  • Fix: Improve error reporting to HTTP/2 clients for header processing errors by reporting problems at the end of the frame where the error was detected rather than at the end of the headers. (markt)
  • Fix: Remove the remaining reference to a stream once the stream has been recycled. This makes the stream eligible for garbage collection earlier and thereby improves scalability. (markt)

Jasper

  • Fix: 68546: Generate optimal size and types for JSP imports maps, as suggested by John Engebretson. (remm)
  • Fix: Review usage of debug logging and downgrade trace or data dumping operations from debug level to trace. (remm)

WebSocket

  • Fix: Correct a regression in the fix for 66508 that could cause an UpgradeProcessor leak in some circumstances. (markt)
  • Fix: Review usage of debug logging and downgrade trace or data dumping operations from debug level to trace. (remm)

Coyote

  • Fix: Refactor the VirtualThreadExecutor so that it can be used by the NIO2 connector which was using platform threads even when configured to use virtual threads. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct a regression in the fix for 67675 that broke TLS key file parsing for PKCS#8 format keys that do not specify an explicit pseudo-random function and rely on the default. This typically affects keys generated by OpenSSL 1.0.2. (markt)
  • Fix: Allow multiple operations with the same name on introspected mbeans, fixing a regression caused by the introduction of a second addSslHostConfig method. (remm)
  • Fix: Relax the check that the HTTP Host header is consistent with the host used in the request line, if any, to make the check case insensitive since host names are case insensitive. (markt)
  • Add: 68348: Add support for the partitioned attribute for cookies including session cookies. (markt)

Web Applications

  • Fix: 68035: Additional fix to the Manager application to enable the deployment of a web application located in a Host's appBase where the web application is specified by a bare (no path) WAR or directory name as shown in the documentation. (markt)

Catalina

  • Fix: Enable Tomcat to start if an (old) XML parser is configured that does not support allow-java-encodings. A warning will be logged if such an XML parser is detected. (markt)
  • Fix: Change the behaviour of custom error pages. If an error occurs after the response is committed, once the custom error page content has been added to the response the connection is now closed immediately rather than closed cleanly. i.e. the last chunk that marks the end of the response body is no longer sent. This acts as an additional signal to the client that the request experienced an error. (markt)
  • Fix: 65479: When handling requests using JASPIC authentication, ensure that PasswordValidationCallback.getResult() returns the result of the password validation rather than always returning false. Fixed via pull request #438 provided by Robert Rodewald. (markt)

2021-08-06 Tomcat 10.1.0-M4 (markt)

WebSocket

  • Fix: Correct a regression in the Java 8 to Java 11 changes made in 10.1.0-M3 that caused all WebSocket end points to fail to register. (markt)

not released Tomcat 10.1.0-M3 (markt)

General

  • Update: Update the minimum required Java version to Java 11. (markt)

Catalina

  • Code: Incremented the supported Jakarta Servlet version to 6.0 to align with the current development branch of the Jakarta Servlet specification. Plans have changed and the next iteration of the Servlet specification will be 6.0 rather than 5.1. (markt)
  • Fix: 65411: Always close the connection when an uncaught NamingException occurs to avoid connection locking. Submitted by Ole Ostergaard. (remm)
  • Fix: 65433: Correct a regression in the fix for 65397 where a StringIndexOutOfBoundsException could be triggered if the canonical path of the target of a symlink was shorter than the canonical path of the directory in which the symlink had been created. Patch provided by Cedomir Igaly. (markt)
  • Add: 65443: Refactor the CorsFilter to make it easier to extend. (markt)
  • Fix: To avoid unnecessary cache revalidation, do not add an HTTP Expires header when setting adding an HTTP header of CacheControl: private. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor JULI's custom LogManager, the web application class loader implementation, the web resources implementation, the JreLeakPreventionListener implementation and the StandardJarScanner implementation to remove Java 8 specific code now that the minimum Java version has been increased to 11. (markt)
  • Code: Remove all references to the endorsed standards override feature and the specifying of optional packages (extensions) in the manifest as these are not supported in Java 11. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: When writing an HTTP/2 response via sendfile (only enabled when useAsyncIO is true) the connection flow control window was sometimes ignored leading to various error conditions. sendfile now checks both the stream and connection flow control windows before writing. (markt)
  • Add: Add debug logging for writing an HTTP/2 response via sendfile. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct bugs in the HTTP/2 connection flow control management that meant it was possible for a connection to stall waiting for a connection flow control window update that had already arrived. Any streams on that connection that were trying to write when this happened would time out. (markt)
  • Fix: 65448: When using TLS with NIO, it was possible for a blocking response write to hang just before the final TLS packet associated with the response until the connection timed out at which point the final packet would be sent and the connection closed. (markt)
  • Fix: 65454: Fix a race condition that could result in a delay to a new request. The new request could be queued to wait for an existing request to finish processing rather than the thread pool creating a new thread to process the new request. (markt)
  • Fix: 65460: Correct a regression introduced in the previous release in the change to reduce the number of small HTTP/2 window updates sent for streams. A logic error meant that small window updates for the connection were dropped. This meant that the connection flow window slowly reduced over time until nothing could be sent. (markt)
  • Fix: Remove NIO workarounds and code that is no longer needed with Java 11. (remm)
  • Code: Refactor the endpoints to remove Java 8 specific code now that the minimum Java version has been increased to 11. (markt)

Jasper

  • Code: Add additional generics to the EL API to align with the latest changes in the EL specification project. (markt)
  • Add: Enable EL lambda expressions to be coerced to functional interfaces. This is an implementation of a proposed extension to the Jakarta Expression Language specification. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor the EL API and implementation to remove Java 8 specific code now that the minimum Java version has been increased to 11. (markt)

WebSocket

  • Code: Refactor the WebSocket implementation to remove Java 8 specific code now that the minimum Java version has been increased to 11. (markt)

Web applications

  • Fix: 65404: Correct a regression in the fix for 63362 that caused the server status page in the Manager web application to be truncated if HTTP upgrade was used such as when starting a WebSocket connection. (markt)

2021-07-02 Tomcat 10.1.0-M2 (markt)

Catalina

  • Code: Refactor the RemoteIpValve to use the common utility method for list to comma separated string conversion. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor JNDIRealm$JNDIConnection so its fields are accessible to sub-classes of JNDIRealm. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix serialization warnings in UserDatabasePrincipal reported by SpotBugs. (markt)
  • Fix: 65397: Calls to ServletContext.getResourcePaths() no longer include symbolic links in the results unless allowLinking has been set to true. If a resource is skipped because of this change, a warning will be logged as this typically indicates a configuration issue. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: 65368: Improve handling of clean closes of inbound TLS connections. Treat them the same way as clean closes of non-TLS connections rather than as unknown errors. (markt)
  • Fix: Modify the HTTP/2 connector not to sent small updates for stream flow control windows to the user agent as, depending on how the user agent is written, this may trigger small writes from the user agent that in turn trigger the overhead protection. Small updates for stream flow control windows are now combined with subsequent flow control window updates for that stream to ensure that all stream flow control window updates sent from Tomcat are larger than overheadWindowUpdateThreshold. (markt)
  • Add: Add additional debug logging to track the current state of the HTTP/2 overhead count that Tomcat uses to detect and close potentially malicious connections. (markt)
  • Update: Many HTTP/2 requests from browsers will trigger one overhead frame and one non-overhead frame. Change the overhead calculation so that a non-overhead frame reduces the current overhead count by 2 rather than 1. This means that, over time, the overhead count for a well-behaved connection will trend downwards. (markt)
  • Update: Change the initial HTTP/2 overhead count from -10 to -10 * overheadCountFactor. This means that, regardless of the value chosen for overheadCountFactor, when a connection opens 10 overhead frames in a row will be required to trigger the overhead protection. (markt)
  • Update: Increase the default overheadCountFactor from 1 to 10 and change the reduction in overhead count for a non-overhead frame from -2 to -20. This allows for a larger range (0-20) to be used for overheadCountFactor providing for finer-grained control. (markt)
  • Fix: Modify the parsing of HTTP header values that use the 1#token to ignore empty elements as per RFC 7230 section 7 instead of treating the presence of empty elements as an error. (markt)
  • Fix: Expand the unit tests for HttpServlet.doHead() and correct the flushing of the response buffer. The buffer used to behave as if it was one byte smaller than the configured size. The buffer was flushed (and the response committed if required) when the buffer was full. The buffer is now flushed (and the response committed if required) if the buffer is full and there is more data to write. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix an issue where concurrent HTTP/2 writes (or concurrent reads) to the same connection could hang and eventually timeout when async IO was enabled (it is enabled by default). (markt)

Jasper

  • Fix: 65387: Correct a regression in the fix for 65124 and restore the local definition of out for tags that implement TryCatchFinally. (markt)
  • Fix: 65390: Correct a regression in the fix for 65124 and restore code that was removed in error leading to JSP compilation failures in some circumstances. (markt)
  • Update: Update to the Eclipse JDT compiler 4.20. (markt)
  • Add: Add support for specifying Java 17 (with the value 17) as the compiler source and/or compiler target for JSP compilation. If used with an Eclipse JDT compiler version that does not support these values, a warning will be logged and the latest supported version will used. (markt)
  • Fix: 65377: Update the Java code generation for JSPs not to use the boxed primitive constructors as they have been deprecated in Java 9 and marked for future removal in Java 16. valueOf() is now used instead. (markt)

WebSocket

  • Code: Refactor the DigestAuthenticator to reuse a shared SecureRandom instance rather than create a new one to generate the cnonce if required. (markt)

Web applications

  • Fix: 65385: Correct the link in the documentation web application the Maven Central repository. (markt)

  • Update: Refactor principal handling in UserDatabaseRealm using an inner class that extends GenericPrincipal. (remm)
  • Fix: Enable the default doHead() implementation in HttpServlet to correctly handle responses where the content length needs to be represented as a long since it is larger than the maximum value that can be represented by an int. (markt)
  • Fix: Avoid synchronization on roles verification for the memory UserDatabase. (remm)
  • Fix: Fix the default doHead() implementation in HttpServlet to correctly handle responses where the Servlet calls ServletResponse.reset() and/or ServletResponse.resetBuffer(). (markt)
  • Fix: Fix the default doHead() implementation in HttpServlet to correctly handle responses generated using the Servlet non-blocking API. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: 65303: Fix a possible NullPointerException if an error occurs on an HTTP/1.1 connection being upgraded to HTTP/2 or on a pushed HTTP/2 stream. (markt)
  • Update: Simplify AprEndpoint socket bind for all platforms. (michaelo)
  • Fix: 65340: Add missing check for a negative return value for Hpack.decodeInteger in the HpackDecoder, which could cause a NegativeArraySizeException exception. Submitted by Thomas, and verified the fix is present in the donated hpack code in a further update. (remm)
  • Add: Add debug logging for HTTP/2 HPACK header decoding. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct parsing of HTTP headers consisting of a list of tokens so that a header with an empty token is treated consistently regardless of whether the empty token is at the start, middle or end of the list of tokens. (markt)
  • Fix: Remove support for the identity transfer encoding. The inclusion of this encoding in RFC 2616 was an error that was corrected in 2001. Requests using this transfer encoding will now receive a 501 response. (markt)
  • Fix: Process transfer encoding headers from both HTTP 1.0 and HTTP 1.1 clients. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure that if the transfer encoding header contains the chunked, that the chunked encoding is the final encoding listed. (markt)

Jasper

  • Code: Review code used to generate Java source from JSPs and tags and remove code found to be unnecessary. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor use of internal ChildInfo class to use compile time type checking rather than run time type checking. (markt)
  • Fix: 65124: Partial fix. When generating Java source code to call a tag handler, only define the local variable JspWriter out when it is going to be used. (markt)
  • Code: Add generics to the EL 5.0 API to align with the current EL 5.0 development branch. (markt)
  • Update: Update the web-fragment.xml included in jasper.jar and jasper-el.jar to use the Servlet 5.0 schema. (markt)
