 This problem occurs ONLY with this jdk (1.1.6 on Solaris), this could
 be a bug in the JDK.

 1) Set the "Putable" flag to on in the HTTPFrame associated with your
 2) In the associated indexer (default), set the Putable flag to on for all

 No you don't need to recompile Jigsaw. But if you want to recompile 
 Jigsaw AND use servlets you need to modify some files.

 There is some tutorials in the documentation. See /Doc/Overview.html
 The documentation will be updated in the next releases.
