I haven't had any problems with the servlet filters as of yet.

I can try the ServerInterface but how will the jigsaw startup work?  I thought the classes listed in the server.props file had to be of type ServerHandler.

One other note, I tried to make a resource out of the tomcat embedded server and it didn't work at all, mainly, because I could not get the tomcat instance to decide it like my requests.

I may try Jetty to see if that interface is any easier to use.  From what I have read so far, tomcat wasn't meant to be embedded in this way but boy it would nice if we could pull it off.

Thanks for the help,

That would be a good interim for a full fledge implementation in Jigsaw 
(the issue I guess is mainly with the servlet filters, no?)

Could you try to implement ServerInterface? This one is the resource, and 
the gui only deals with resources, so that might explain the issue you are
