As I understand it, weak linking permits the Java linker to only link classes
that Jigsaw uses. In other words if you don't use weak linking, all of the
classes in classes.zip (which probably contains a lot of unused stuff) would
be included.

Being a Java newbie I'm just not familiar enough at this point to know exactly
what is saved where in the environment and then how the linker treats everything
from that point. I did see the jigsaw.zip file in the classes folder, but
did not
know for sure what it contained, so I elected to just compile the source
from the
ground up, to be safe. At first I thought this may have been why it worked
for me,
but that's not it. I just did what you suggested, and created a new Java project
and added just jigsaw.zip (it already contained classes.zip) and it linked
and ran
just fine, exactly as my compiled version did.

While in limited testing the Jigsaw seems to work just fine, I am seeing the
following error, repeated in my errlog and I have not yet tracked down why. It
occurs only after a request and not every time. This is the *only* error I am
seeing however and I did *not* have to change the names of the .jigidx files
and have changed *nothing* in httpd.props or anywhere else for that matter.

<c0;client0>: caught ClientException: [w3c.jigsaw.http.ClientException]
Couldn't parse the request: expecting  (32) got (-1)context:
<c1;client1>: caught ClientException: [w3c.jigsaw.http.ClientException]
Couldn't parse the request: expecting  (32) got (-1)context: 

Hope something in this helps. sinc, -jeff
