Changelog

in development Tomcat 11.0.0-M21 (markt)

Catalina

  • Add: Add support for shallow copies when using WebDAV. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: Fix OpenSSL FFM use of ERR_error_string with a 128 byte buffer, and use ERR_error_string_n instead. (remm)
  • Fix: Fix a crash on Windows setting CA certificate on null path. (remm)

Other

  • Update: Revert Derby to 10.16.1.1 as that is the latest version of Derby that runs on Java 17. (markt)

2024-05-08 Tomcat 11.0.0-M20 (markt)

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 removal of the trimCredentials setting which is now hard-coded to false. (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)
  • Add: Add more timescale options to AccessLogValve and ExtendedAccessLogValve. Allow timescales to apply to "time-taken" token in ExtendedAccessLogValve. (schultz)
  • Fix: Fix WebDAV lock null (locks for non existing resources) thread safety and removal. (remm)
  • Fix: Add periodic checking for WebDAV locks expiration. (remm)
  • Fix: Extend Asn1Parser to parse UTF8Strings. (michaelo)
  • Fix: Remove MBean metadata for attibutes that have been removed. Based on pull request #719 by Shawn Q. (markt)
  • Code: Remove duplicate ID check from Manager.rotateSessionId(). (markt)

Coyote

  • 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)
  • Fix: Ensure that the onAllDataRead() event is triggered when the request body uses chunked encoding and is read using non-blocking IO. (markt)
  • Fix: 68934: Add debug logging in the latch object when exceeding maxConnections. (remm)
  • Fix: Refactor trailer field handling to use a MimeHeaders instance to store trailer fields. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure that multiple instances of the same trailer field are handled correctly. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix non-blocking reads of chunked request bodies. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor HTTP header parsing to use common parsing code. (markt)
  • Fix: When an invalid HTTP response header was dropped, an off-by-one error meant that the first header in the response was also dropped. Fix based on pull request #710 by foremans. (markt)

Jasper

  • Add: Add support for specifying Java 23 (with the value 23) 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)

WebSocket

  • Fix: 68884: Reduce the write timeout when writing WebSocket close messages for abnormal closes. The timeout defaults to 50 milliseconds and may be controlled using the org.apache.tomcat.websocket.ABNORMAL_SESSION_CLOSE_SEND_TIMEOUT property in the user properties collection associated with the WebSocket session. (markt)

Web applications

  • Fix: Examples: Improve performance of WebSocket chat application when multiple clients disconnect at the same time. (markt)

2024-04-16 Tomcat 11.0.0-M19 (remm)

Catalina

  • 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)
  • Add: Add a default implementation for HttpSession.getAccessor() to align with the Servlet 6.1 API. (markt)
  • Add: Add the Jakarta EE 11 XML schemas and update Tomcat and included web applications to use them. (markt)
  • 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

  • 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)
  • Update: Adjust the Set-Cookie header generated by the Rfc6265CookieProcessor so that attributes with a value of the empty string will be output as bare attribute names without an equals sign or value. This will simplify future support for similar new attributes by removing the need for special handling. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor the internal representation of the HttpOnly and Secure attributes to use the empty string as the value for consistency with the recent changes to Set-Cookie header generation. (markt)
  • Fix: Do not generate the Max-Age attribute for Set-Cookie headers associated with cookies that have been configured with a Max-Age value of zero as RFC 6265 does not permit a value of zero in this case. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct a regression in the support for user provided SSLContext instances that broke the org.apache.catalina.security.TLSCertificateReloadListener. (markt)

Jasper

  • 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)

Other

2024-03-14 Tomcat 11.0.0-M18 (markt)

General

  • Update: Reduce the minimum supported Java version to Java 17. (markt)

Catalina

  • Fix: Minor performance improvement for building filter chains. Based on ideas from pull request #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. The org.apache.catalina.Executor interface now extends ExecutorService. (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 true. (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)

Coyote

  • Fix: Fix bad symbol lookup use in the OpenSSL FFM code. (remm)
  • 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)

Jasper

  • Add: Add method invocation support for java.util.Optional via the jakarta.el.OptionalELResolver to Tomcat's implementation of the Jakarta EL API to align with the latest proposals for the Jakarta EL 6.0 API. The property support has also been refined for greater consistency. (markt)
  • Update: The defaults for compilerSourceVM and compilerTargetVM have been updated to 17 to align with Java 17 being the minimum Java version required for Tomcat 11. (markt)

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)
  • Fix: 57130: Allow digest.(sh|bat) to accept password from a file or stdin. (csutherl/schultz)

2024-02-19 Tomcat 11.0.0-M17 (markt)

Catalina

  • Add: Implement HttpSession.getAccessor() which provides a mechanism for applications to interact with an HttpSession outside the standard Servlet processing of an HTTP request. This is expected to be especially useful with applications using the Jakarta WebSocket API. (markt)
  • 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: Review usage of debug logging and downgrade trace or data dumping operations from debug level to trace. (remm)
  • Fix: 68089: Further improve the performance of request attribute access for ApplicationHttpRequest and ApplicationRequest. (markt)
  • 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: Optimize state handling for OpenSSL context callbacks with the FFM API. (remm)
  • 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: Additional fixes to correctly support length as a read-only property of an array via the ArrayELResolver. (markt)
  • 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)

Web applications

  • Add: Add support for responses in JSON format from the examples application RequestHeaderExample. (schultz)

Other

  • Fix: Correct the remaining OSGi contract references in the manifest files to refer to the Jakarta EE contract names rather than the Java EE contract names. Based on pull request #685 provided by Paul A. Nicolucci. (markt)

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)

Jasper

  • Update: The defaults for compilerSourceVM and compilerTargetVM have been updated to 21 to align with Java 21 being the minimum Java version required for Tomcat 11. (markt)

Web Applications

Catalina

  • Fix: Background processes should not be run concurrently with lifecycle operations of a container. (remm)
  • Add: Add support for the jakarta.servlet.request.secure_protocol request attribute that has been added in Jakarta Servlet 6.1. This replaces the now deprecated Tomcat specific request attribute org.apache.tomcat.util.net.secure_protocol_version. (markt)
  • Add: Align behaviour with the latest addition to the Servlet 6.1 specification that requires that all HTTP error dispatches use the GET method. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct unintended escaping of XML in some WebDAV responses. The XML list of support locks when provided in response to a PROPFIND request was incorrectly XML escaped. (markt)
  • Fix: 68227: Ensure that AsyncListener.onComplete() is called if AsyncListener.onError() calls AsyncContext.dispatch(). (markt)
  • Fix: 68228: Use a 408 status code if a read timeout occurs during HTTP request processing. Includes a test case based on code provided by adwsingh. (markt)

Coyote

Coyote

  • Add: 66670: Add SSLHostConfig#certificateKeyPasswordFile and SSLHostConfig#certificateKeystorePasswordFile. (michaelo)
  • Add: When calling SSLHostConfigCertificate.setCertificateKeystore(ks), automatically call setCertificateKeystoreType(ks.getType()). (markt)
  • 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 (starting with preview build 20) or later. (remm)
  • Fix: 67628: Clarify how the ciphers attribute of the SSLHostConfig is used. (markt)
