    I am using JDK 1.1.3, however this is on an IRIX os. So it arrives from SGI
    seeing that Sun don't supply an IRIX installation.

    Yes this happens with every servlet, well I tried just the 3 example
    servlets which arrive with JSDK2.0. The three servlet classes I attempted were :


    If the trace back is reoporting the correct line numbers, which I assume
    it is as haven't seen a problem with that before. Then, the interesting
    thing is that all servlet failures are with the same java error, as above. In each
    case this happens to be in "doGet" method and all at the very first
    out.println(...); statement. So the context it would be in is:

    // then write the data of the response
    out = response.getWriter();

    Note ...... is what ever the Tag text string happens to be.

    I know whats this to do with ClassLoader ?, well I couldn't see it from
    the source code either.

    Thats just it, not all .class files are "servlets".

    Wouldn't it be easier just to have just a directory Frame and not
    have to bother with servletWrapper, as else any time a new servlet class
    is copied into servlets/ directory one has to manage it from JigAdmin
    prior to having the servlet available.

    Same issues here as for servletWrapper i.e why not just have a
    CGIdirectoryFrame take care of all files under that directory.

    Yes, I forgot about that. So I did this and then I come across the
    following error:

    (On my browser) "CGI error: unable to parse script headers."
    (In stdout) "org.w3c.jigsaw.frames.CgiFrame@/cgi-bin/ http://..../cgi-bin/ emited invalid output [expecting :(58) got <FF>(-1)

    Then I ask the following questions

    [Q] What of a mime-type file configuration ?

        Is this required or is this essentially managed by indexer
        configuration ?

    The reason I ask this is because the above cgi-bin script has the
    following returning header

    "Content-type: image/x-xbitmap\n\n";

    Of course, I haven't set up anything for this content type.

    So what does ?

    As one wouldn't want users to discover the names of cgi-bin scripts by
    traversing the cgi-bin directory.

    Many thanks for the prompt response.

    I'll try and install the same configuration on a Sun Solaris machine to
    see if I manage to resolve the problem.
