If you look at the published webapp under
do you see "servlet-api" jar(s) included in its "WEB-INF/lib"?
While it is technically not correct to include a servlet-api jar in
WEB-INF/lib of a webapp, Tomcat tries to help out by ignoring the jar.
If this is occurring, you would see an INFO message in the console log
like the following:
INFO: validateJarFile(<path to jar>) - jar not loaded. See Servlet Spec
2.3, section 9.7.2. Offending class: javax/servlet/Servlet.class
Are you seeing this?
