Patch proposal


I have a web application (attached) that has a Servlet with an annotated (@Resource) field and an annotated (@Resource) method.

When I request the Servlet I'm receiving:

javax.naming.NameNotFoundException: Name test.TestServlet is not bound in this Context

I searched the sources and found that org.apache.catalina.startup.WebAnnotationSet processes and prepares for binding only @Resource annotation on a class level. However org.apache.catalina.core.DefaultInstanceManager tries to process @Resource annotation on field/method level and to inject the necessary Object. Unfortunately as the information is not processed and bound in the naming previously, NameNotFoundException is thrown.

I would like to propose a patch (attached).

I'm looking forward to your comments.

Thanks in advance.

Steps to reproduce the issue:

1. Deploy the attached web application
2. Request http://localhost:8080/test/TestServlet
3. NameNotFoundException is thrown
4. Apply the patch and restart Tomcat
5. Request http://localhost:8080/test/TestServlet
6. You should see in the browser "Annotated field: test Annotated method: test1"
