Description Mark Thornton 2012-11-04 18:43:14 UTC
In servlet 3.0 the type in an env-entry can be any type which has a public constructor taking a single String (or character) as an argument. Tomcat only accepts a fixed list of types (see NamingContextListener from line 813).

This is legal in web.xml but not accepted by tomcat:

<env-entry>
  <env-entry-name>location</env-entry-name>
  <env-entry-type>java.io.File</env-entry-type>
  <env-entry-value>/var/lib/tomcat</env-entry-value>
</env-entry>

Thanks for the report and for tracking down the point in the code that needed to be fixed.

This has been fixed (and a simple test case added) in trunk and 7.0.x and will be included in 7.0.33 onwards.
