Bug 60412

Summary: RewriteValve documentation does not tell about comment support (#)
Product: Tomcat 8 Reporter: Michael Osipov <michaelo>
Component: CatalinaAssignee: Tomcat Developers Mailing List <dev>
Severity: minor    
Priority: P2    
Version: 8.5.x-trunk

Hardware: All

Description Michael Osipov 2016-11-24 09:29:50 UTC
The official documentation [1] does not tell that httpd style comments (#) are supported. One has either to try or read source code RewriteValve.java, line 704 to check that.

Please update documentation.

Comment 1 Mark Thomas 2016-11-28 12:24:07 UTC
Fixed in:
- trunk for 9.0.0.M14 onwards
- 8.5.x for 8.5.9 onwards
- 8.0.x for 8.0.40 onwards

7.0.x and earlier are not affected as the RewriteValve is not present in those
