Thanks for the quick response!

What apparently seems to happen is that kaffe tries to use its own servlets
implementation (yes, there is one in libraries/extensions/servlet), which not
up to date with the latest servlet specs, or at least the one required by

We've had a similar case last week, with the javax.comm implementation and
rxtx, where the way to get rxtx to work is to remove kaffe's javax.comm
implementation ;)

What I could do, would be to try to replace kaffe's implementation of
javax.servlet with GNU Paperclips which apparently is more up to date with the
latest Servlets specs. I could also try to replace kaffe's implementation of
javax.comm with rxtx's one. But given that none of them is part of the JDK
(1.4), I'd like to ask first if anyone objects before I do some big moves.
