Description C 2007-02-22 00:36:16 UTC
Reference: org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Processor.java

It would be helpful for developers to get informed when some required header
information is missing. eg when headers.getValue("host"); returns null and
http11 is true.

Couldn't you add a log.debug statement that informs the user about missing
header-fields? (For example in Http11Processor.java:1391)

Cedric means org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11Processor.prepareRequest() where in
the request the headers "HTTP/1.1" or "Host" are enforced, but only response
code 505 or 400 and 501 are sent, but no (valuable) background is written to any
log at any debug level (Unsupported transfer encoding, "Host" header missing, etc.)

Good suggestion, thanks for sending in a patch.  I've applied it on the Tomcat
5.5 and 6.0 trunks.
