fix Fix custom UTF-8 decoder so that a byte of value 0xC1 is always rejected immediately as it is never valid in a UTF-8 byte sequence. Update UTF-8 decoder tests to account for UTF-8 decoding improvements in Java 8. The custom UTF-8 decoder is still required due to bugs in the UTF-8 decoder provided by Java. Java 8's decoder is better than Java 7's but it is still buggy. (markt)
fix 56027: Add more options for managing FIPS mode in the AprLifecycleListener. (schultz/kkolinko)
fix 56321: When a WAR is modified, undeploy the web application before deleting any expanded directory as the undeploy process may refer to classes that need to be loaded from the expanded directory.

fix Remove cluster and replicationValve from cluster manager template. These instance are not necessary to template. (kfujino)
fix Add support for cross context session replication to org.apache.catalina.ha.session.BackupManager. (kfujino)
fix Remove the unnecessary cross context check. It does not matter whether the context that is referenced by other context is set to crossContext=true. The context that refers to the different context must be set to crossContext=true. (kfujino)

fix There is no need to set cluster instance when SimpleTcpCluster.unregisterClusterValve is called. Set null than cluster instance for cleanup. (kfujino)
code Backport refactoring of AbstractReplicatedMap to implement Map rather than extend ConcurrentHashMap to enable Tomcat 7 to be built with Java 8. (markt)
fix 56343: Avoid a NPE if Tomcat's Java WebSocket 1.0 implementation is used with the Java WebSocket 1.0 API JAR from the reference implementation. (markt)
fix Increase the default maximum size of the executor used by the WebSocket implementation for call backs associated with asynchronous writes from 10 to 200. (markt)
add Add a warning if the thread group created for WebSocket asynchronous write call backs can not be destroyed when the web application is stopped. (markt)
fix Ensure that threads created to support WebSocket clients are stopped when no longer required. This will happen automatically for WebSocket client connections initiated by web applications but stand alone clients must call WsWebSocketContainer.destroy(). (markt)
fix 56449: When creating a new session, add the message handlers to the session before calling Endpoint.onOpen() so the message handlers are in place should the onOpen() method trigger the sending of any messages. (markt)
fix 56458: Report WebSocket sessions that are created over secure connections as secure rather than as not secure. (markt)
fix Stop threads used for secure WebSocket client connections when they are no longer required and give them better names for easier debugging while they are running. (markt)

fix 56236: Enable Tomcat to work with alternative Servlet and JSP API JARs that package the XML schemas in such as way as to require a dependency on the JSP API before enabling validation for web.xml. Tomcat has no such dependency. (markt)
fix 56246: Fix NullPointerException in MemoryRealm when authenticating an unknown user. (markt)
fix 56248: Allow the deployer to update an existing WAR file without undeploying the existing application if the update flag is set. This allows any existing custom context.xml for the application to be retained. To update an application and remove any existing context.xml simply undeploy the old version of the application before deploying the new version. (markt)
fix Fix CVE-2014-0096: Redefine the globalXsltFile initialisation parameter of the DefaultServlet as relative to CATALINA_BASE/conf or CATALINA_HOME/conf. Prevent user supplied XSLTs used by the DefaultServlet from defining external entities. (markt)

fix 56213: Reduce garbage collection when the NIO connector is under heavy load. (markt)
fix Fix CVE-2014-0075: Improve processing of chuck size from chunked headers. Avoid overflow and use a bit shift instead of a multiplication as it is marginally faster. (markt/kkolinko)
fix Fix CVE-2014-0099: Fix possible overflow when parsing long values from a byte array. (markt)
fix 54475: Add Java 8 support to SMAP generation for JSPs. Patch by Robbie Gibson. (markt)
fix 55483: Improve handing of overloaded methods and constructors in expression language implementation. (markt)
fix 56208: Restore the validateXml option to Jasper that was previously renamed validateTld. Both options are now supported. validateXml controls the validation of web.xml files when Jasper parses them and validateTld controls the validation of *.tld files when Jasper parses them. (markt)
fix 56223: Throw an IllegalStateException if a call is made to ServletContext.setInitParameter() after the ServletContext has been initialized. (markt)
fix 56265: Do not escape values of dynamic tag attributes containing EL expressions. (kkolinko)
fix Make the default compiler source and target versions for JSPs Java 6 since Tomcat 7 requires Java 6 as a minimum. (markt)
update 56283: Update to the Eclipse JDT Compiler P20140317-1600 which adds support for Java 8 syntax to JSPs. Add support for value "1.8" for the compilerSourceVM and compilerTargetVM options. (markt)

fix Add support for LAST_ACCESS_AT_START system property to Manager web application. (kfujino)
fix Add definition of org.apache.catalina.ant.FindLeaksTask. (kfujino)
fix 56273: If the Manager web application does not perform an operation because the web application is already being serviced, report an error rather than reporting success. (markt)
fix 56304: Add a note to the documentation about not using WebSocket with BIO HTTP in production. (markt)
fix 56143: Improve service.bat so that it can be launched from a non-UAC console. This includes using a single call to tomcat7.exe to install the Windows service rather than three calls, and using command line arguments instead of environment variables to pass the settings. (markt/kkolinko)
fix Fix regression in 7.0.52: when using service.bat install to install the service the values for --StdOutput, --StdError options were passed as blank instead of "auto". (kkolinko)
fix Align options between service.bat and exe Windows installer. For service.bat the changes are in --Classpath, --DisplayName, --StartPath, --StopPath. For exe installer the changes are in --JvmMs, --JvmMx options, which are now 128 Mb and 256 Mb respectively instead of being empty. Explicitly specify --LogPath path when uninstalling Windows service, avoiding default value for that option. (kkolinko)
code Simplify Windows *.bat files: remove %OS% checks, as java 6 does not run on ancient non-NT operating systems. (kkolinko)
fix 56137: Explicitly use the BIO connector in the SSL example in server.xml so it doesn't break if APR is enabled. (markt)
fix 56139: Avoid a web application class loader leak in some unit tests when running on Windows. (markt)

fix 55937: When deploying applications, treat a context path of /ROOT as equivalent to /. (markt)
fix 55943: Improve the implementation of the class loader check that prevents web applications from trying to override J2SE implementation classes. As part of this fix, refactor the way a null parent class loader is handled which enables a number of null checks and object creation calls to be removed. Note that this change means that, by default, the web application class loader is now a higher priority for loading classes than the system class loader. (markt)
fix 55958: Differentiate between foo.war the WAR file and foo.war the directory. (markt)
fix 55960: Improve the single sign on (SSO) unit tests. Patch provided by Brian Burch. (markt)

fix 56042: If a request in async mode has an error but has already been dispatched don't generate an error page in the ErrorReportValve so the dispatch target can handle it. (markt)
fix Add missing javax.annotation.sql.* classes to annotations-api.jar. (markt)
fix The type of logger attribute of Context MBean should be not org.apache.commons.logging.Log but org.apache.juli.logging.Log. (kfujino)
fix 56082: Fix a concurrency bug in JULI's LogManager implementation. (markt)

fix 55996: Ensure Async requests timeout correctly when using the NIO HTTP connector. (markt)
add 56021: Make it possible to use the Windows-MY key store with the BIO and NIO connectors for SSL configuration. It requires a keystoreFile="" keystoreType="Windows-My" to be set on the connector. Based on a patch provided by Asanka. (markt)
fix Correct a regression in the XML refactoring that meant that errors in TLD files were swallowed. (markt)

fix 55973: Fix processing of XML schemas when validation is enabled in Jasper. (kkolinko)
fix 56010: Don't throw an IllegalArgumentException when JspFactory.getPageContext is used with JspWriter.DEFAULT_BUFFER. Based on a patch by Eugene Chung. (markt)
fix 56012: When using the extends attribute of the page directive do not import the super class if it is in an unnamed package as imports from unnamed packages are now explicitly illegal. (markt)
fix 56029: A regression in the fix for 55198 meant that when EL containing a ternary expression was used in an attribute a compilation error would occur for some expressions. (markt)
fix Correct several errors in jspxml Schema and DTD. (kkolinko)
fix Change default value of the blockExternal attribute of JspC task. The default value is true. Add support for -no-blockExternal switch when JspC is run as a standalone application. (kkolinko)

fix Do not return an empty string for the Sec-WebSocket-Protocol HTTP header when no sub-protocol has been requested or no sub-protocol could be agreed as RFC6455 requires that no Sec-WebSocket-Protocol header is returned in this case. (markt)
Web applications
fix Add index.xhtml to the welcome files list for the examples web application. (kkolinko)
fix Clarify that the connectionTimeout may also be used as the read timeout when reading a request body (if any) in the documentation web application. (markt)
fix Clarify the behaviour of the maxConnections attribute for a connector in the documentation web application. (markt)
fix 55888: Update the documentation web application to make it clearer that a Container may define no more than one Realm. (markt)
fix 55956: Where available, displayed the forwarded remote IP address available on the status page of the Manager web application. (markt)
fix Correct links to the Tomcat mailing lists in the ROOT web application. (kkolinko)
fix In Manager web application improve handling of file upload errors. Display a message instead of error 500 page. Simplify parts handling code, as it is known that Tomcat takes care of them when recycling a request. (kkolinko)
fix 55166, 56045: Copy the XML schemas used for validation that are packaged in jsp-api.jar to servlet-api.jar so that an embedded Tomcat instance can start without Jasper being available. This also enables validation to work without Jasper being available. (markt/kkolinko)
fix 56039: Enable the JmxRemoteLifecycleListener to work over SSL. Patch by esengstrom. (markt)
fix 55743: Enable the stop script to work when the shutdown port is disabled and a PID file is defined. This is only available on platforms that use (markt)
fix 55986: When forcing Tomcat to stop via kill -9 $CATALINA_PID, the script could incorrectly report that Tomcat had not yet completely stopped when it had. Based on a patch by jess. (markt)

Tomcat 7.0.50 (violetagg)released 2014-01-08
fix Handle the case where a context.xml file is added to a web application deployed from a directory. Previously the file was ignored until Tomcat was restarted. Now (assuming automatic deployment is enabled) it will trigger a redeploy of the web application. (markt)
fix Fix string comparison in HostConfig.setContextClass(). (kkolinko)
code Streamline handling of WebSocket messages when no handler is configured for the message currently being received. (markt)
fix Handle the case where a WebSocket annotation configures a message size limit larger than the default permitted by Tomcat. (markt)
fix 55855: This is a partial fix that bypasses the relatively expensive check for a WebSocket upgrade request if no WebSocket endpoints have been registered. (markt)
fix 55905: Prevent a NPE when web.xml references a taglib file that does not exist. Provide better error message. (violetagg)
fix When using the BIO connector with an internal executor, do not display a warning that the executor has not shutdown as the default configuration for BIO connectors is not to wait. This is because threads in keep-alive connections cannot be interrupted and therefore the warning was nearly always displayed. (markt)
fix JspC uses servlet context initialization parameters to pass configuration so ensure that the servlet context used supports initialization parameters. (markt)
fix In AbstractReplicatedMap#finalize, remove rpcChannel from channel Listener of group channel before sending MapMessage.MSG_STOP message. This prevents that the node that sent the MapMessage.MSG_STOP by normal shutdown is added to member map again by ping at heartbeat thread in the node that received the MapMessage.MSG_STOP. (kfujino)
fix Add time stamp to GET_ALL_SESSIONS message. (kfujino)
Web applications
fix Fix the sample configuration of StaticMembershipInterceptor in order to prevent warning log. uniqueId must be 16 bytes. (kfujino)

add 51294: Add support for unpacking WARs located outside of the Host's appBase in to the appBase. (markt)
fix 55656: Configure the Digester to use the server class loader when parsing server.xml rather than the class loader that loaded StandardServer. Patch provided by Roberto Benedetti. (markt)
fix 55664: Correctly handle JSR 356 WebSocket Encoder, Decoder and MessageHandler implementations that use a generic type such as Encoder.Text<List<String>>. Includes a test case by Niki Dokovski. (markt)
fix Correctly handle WebSocket Encoders, Decoders and MessageHandlers that use arrays of generic types. (markt)
fix 55681: Ensure that the WebSocket session is made available to MessageHandler method calls. (markt)
fix Updated servlet spec version and documentation section-number reported when JAR files are rejected for containing a trigger class (e.g. javax.servlet.Servlet). (schultz)
add Modify the WebSocket handshake process so that the user properties Map exposed by the ServerEndpointConfig during the call to Configurator.modifyHandshake() is unique to the connection rather than shared by all connections associated with the Endpoint. This allows for easier configuration of per connection properties from within modifyHandshake(). (markt)
fix 55684: Log a warning but continue if the memory leak detection code is unable to access all threads to check for possible memory leaks when a web application is stopped. (markt)
fix Define the web-fragment.xml in tomcat7-websocket.jar as a Servlet 3.0 web fragment rather than as a Servlet 3.1 web fragment. (markt)
fix 55715: Add a per web application executor to the WebSocket implementation and use it for calling SendHandler.onResult() when there is a chance that the current thread also initiated the write. (markt)
fix Prevent file descriptors leak and ensure that files are closed when configuring the web application. (violetagg)
fix Fixed the name of the provider-configuration file located in tomcat7-websocket.jar!/META-INF/services that exposes information for javax.websocket.server.ServerEndpointConfig$Configurator implementation. (violetagg)
fix 55760: Remove the unnecessary setting of the system property in the SpnegoAuthenticator as in addition to it being unnecessary, it causes problems with using SPNEGO with IBM JDKs. Patch provided by Arunav Sanyal. (markt)
fix 55772: Ensure that the request and response are recycled after an error during asynchronous processing. Includes a test case based on code contributed by Todd West. (markt)
fix 55778: Add an option to the JNDI Realm to control the QOP used for the connection to the LDAP server after authentication when using SPNEGO with delegated credentials. This value is used to set the environment property for the LDAP connection. (markt)
fix 55798: Log an error if the MemoryUserDatabase is unable to find the specified user database file. (markt)
fix 55799: Correctly enforce the restriction in JSR356 that no more than one data message may be sent to a remote WebSocket endpoint at a time. (markt)
fix When Catalina parses TLD files, always use a namespace aware parser to be consistent with how Jasper parses TLD files. The tldNamespaceAware attribute of the Context is now ignored. (markt)
fix Deprecate the tldNamespaceAware Context attribute as TLDs are always parsed with a namespace aware parser. (markt)
fix Correct a logic error that meant that unpackWARs was ignored and the WAR was always expanded if a WAR failed to deploy. (markt)
add Add support for defining copyXML on a per Context basis. (markt)
fix Define the expected behaviour of the automatic deployment and align the implementation to that definition. (markt)
add When running under a security manager, change the default value of the Host's deployXML attribute to false. (markt)
add If a Host is configured with a value of false for deployXML, a web application has an embedded descriptor at META-INF/context.xml and no explicit descriptor has been defined for this application, do not allow the application to start. The reason for this is that the embedded descriptor may contain configuration necessary for secure operation such as a RemoteAddrValve. (markt)
fix Prevent an NPE in the WebSocket ServerContainer when processing an HTTP session end event. (markt)
add 55801: Add the ability to set a custom SSLContext to use for client wss connections. Patch provided by Maciej Lypik. (markt)
fix 55804: If the GSSCredential for the cached Principal expires when using SPNEGO authentication, force a re-authentication. (markt)
add 55811: If the main web.xml contains an empty absolute-ordering element and validation of web.xml is not enabled, skip parsing any web-fragment.xml files as the result is never used. (markt)
fix 55839: Extend support for digest prefixes {MD5}, {SHA} and {SSHA} to all Realms rather than just the JNDIRealm. (markt)
fix 55842: Ensure that if a larger than default response buffer is configured that the full buffer is used when a Servlet outputs via a Writer. (markt)
fix 55851: Further fixes to enable SPNEGO authentication to work with IBM JDKs. Based on a patch by Arunav Sanyal. (markt)
add Fix CVE-2013-4590: Add an option to the Context to control the blocking of XML external entities when parsing XML configuration files and enable this blocking by default when a security manager is used. The block is implemented via a custom resolver to enable the logging of any blocked entities. (markt)
code Implement a number of small refactorings to the APR/native handler for upgraded HTTP connections. (markt)
fix Fix an issue with upgraded HTTP connections over HTTPS (e.g. secure WebSocket) when using the APR/native connector that resulted in the unexpected closure of the connection. (markt)
fix Ensure that the application class loader is used when calling the ReadListener and WriteListener methods when using non-blocking IO. A side effect of not doing this was that JNDI was not available when processing WebSocket events. (markt)
add Make the time that the internal executor (if used) waits for request processing threads to terminate before continuing with the connector stop process configurable. (markt)
fix 55749: Improve the error message when SSLEngine is disabled in the AprLifecycleListener and SSL is configured for an APR/native connector. (markt)
add If a request that includes an Expect: 100-continue header receives anything other than a 2xx response, close the connection This protects against misbehaving clients that may not sent the request body in that case and send the next request instead. (markt)
fix Improve the parsing of trailing headers in HTTP requests. (markt)
fix 55735: Fix a regression caused by the fix to 55198. When processing JSP documents, attributes in XML elements that are template content should have their text xml-escaped, but output of EL expressions in them should not be escaped. (markt)
fix 55807: The JSP compiler used a last modified time of -1 for TLDs in JARs expanded in to WEB-INF/classes (IDEs often do this expansion) when creating the dependency list for JSPs that used that TLD. This meant JSPs using that TLD were recompiled on every access. (markt)
add Add log message that initialization of AbstractReplicatedMap has been completed. (kfujino)
fix The logger of AbstractReplicatedMap should be non-static in order to enable logging of each application. Side-effects of this change is to throw RuntimeException in MapMessage#getKey() and getValue() instead of Null return and error log. (kfujino)
code Simplify the code of DeltaManager#startInternal(). Reduce unnecessary nesting for acquisition of cluster instance. (kfujino)
fix Remove unnecessary attributes of stateTransferCreateSendTime and receiverQueue from cluster manager template. These attributes should not be defined as a template. (kfujino)
fix Fix MBean attribute definition of stateTransfered. The method name is not isStateTransfered() but getStateTransfered(). (kfujino)
fix Correct stop failure log of cluster. Failure cause is not only Valve. (kfujino)
fix Remove unnecessary sleep when sending session blocks on session sync phase. (kfujino)
fix Expose stateTimestampDrop of org.apache.catalina.ha.session.DeltaManager via JMX. (kfujino)

fix 54602: Recycle the byte to character converter used for URIs between requests to ensure an error in one request does not trigger a failure in the next request. (markt)
fix Use the newly added improved UTF-8 decoder for decoding UTF-8 encoded URIs and UTF-8 encoded request bodies. Invalid UTF-8 URIs will not cause an error but will make use of the replacement character when an error is detected. This will allow web applications to handle the URI which will most likely result in a 404 response. The fall-back to decoding with ISO-8859-1 if UTF-8 decoding fails has been removed. Invalid UTF-8 sequences in a request body will trigger an IOException. The way the decoder is used has also been improved. The notable change is that invalid sequences at the end of the input now trigger an error rather than being silently swallowed. (markt)
fix 54624: Ensure that the correct request body length is used when swallowing a request body after FORM authentication prior to restoring the original request preventing possible hanging when restoring POST requests submitted over AJP. (markt)

Once deployment of a web application fails in one form (e.g. WAR), no further attempt (e.g. directory) will be made to deploy that web application. The base Lifecycle implementation has been improved to allow failed web applications to be started once the configuration issues have been resolved. Any changes to a context.xml file (global, per host or web application specific) will now result in a redeploy of the affected web application(s) that ensures that any changes are correctly applied rather than a reload which ignores changes in context.xml files.

update Improve the message printed by TldLocationsCache and add configuration example to the file. (kkolinko)
fix 33453: Recompile JSPs if last modified time of the source or any of its dependencies changes either forwards or backwards. Note that this introduces an incompatible change to the code generated for JSPs. Tomcat will automatically re-compile any JSPs and tag files found in the work directory when upgrading from 7.0.16 or earlier to 7.0.17 or later. If you later downgrade from 7.0.17 or later to 7.0.16 or earlier, you must empty the work directory as part of the downgrade process. (markt)
fix 36362: Handle the case where tag file attributes (which can use any valid XML name) have a name which is not a Java identifier. (markt/kkolinko)
add Broaden the exception handling in the EL Parser so that more failures to parse an expression include the failed expression in the exception message. Hopefully, this will help track down the cause of 51088. (markt)

add Add some additional common JARs that do not contain TLDs or web fragments to the list of JARs to skip when scanning for TLDs and web fragments. (markt)
fix While scanning JARs for TLDs and fragments, avoid using JarFile and use JarInputStream as in most circumstances where JARs are scanned, JarFile will create a temporary copy of the JAR rather than using the resource directly. This change significantly improves startup performance for applications with lots of JARs to be scanned. (markt)
fix Ensure response is committed when AsyncContext#complete() is called. (markt)
add Add a container event that is fired when a session's ID is changed, e.g. on authentication. (markt)

fix Include the seed time when calculating the time taken to create SecureRandom instances for session ID generation, report excessive times (greater than 100ms) at INFO level and provide a value for the message key so a meaningful message appears in the logs. (markt)
fix Don't register Contexts that fail to start with the Mapper. (markt)
add 48685: Add initial support for SPNEGO/Kerberos authentication also referred to as integrated Windows authentication. This includes user authentication, authorisation via the directory using the user's delegated credentials and exposing the user's delegated credentials via a request attribute so applications can make use of them to impersonate the current user when accessing third-party systems that use a compatible authentication mechanism. Based on a patch provided by Michael Osipov. (markt)
fix HTTP range requests cannot be reliably served when a Writer is in use so prevent the DefaultServlet from attempting to do so. (kkolinko)
