Bug 61866

Summary: Compression breaks with JDK update 1.8.0_151
Product: Tomcat 7 Reporter: Maarten van Hulsentop <maarten>
Component: ConnectorsAssignee: Tomcat Developers Mailing List <dev>
Severity: normal    
Priority: P2    
Version: 7.0.82   
Target Milestone: ---   
Hardware: PC   
OS: All   

Description Maarten van Hulsentop 2017-12-06 15:33:04 UTC
When Tomcat 7.0.82 has compression enabled and is combined with jdk 1.8.0_151 (latest update) some responses are not decodeable.

Reproduction scenario;
- Use latest Tomcat 7, 7.0.82
- Use latest JDK 1.8.0_151
- Add  compression="on" to the HTTP connector
- (add a user to enter the manager application)
- Go to the URL http://localhost:8080/manager/html and enter the username/password
- The response will yield a "ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED" 

This does not happen when using an older JDK. In that light, i am not sure if this is JDK related or Tomcat. 
It does not happen for all pages (the examples and documentation on the same server seem to be working fine), manager application is fine.

Tested this on windows 10.
