While that is a surprise to me it isn't an issue for EL since the entire
test suite is type 3 since EL doesn't care whether it is running in a
Jakarta EE platform or directly on Java SE.

I'm currently looking at the EL TCK as it will probably need some tweaks
in light of the consistency changes in progress for the OptionalELResolver.

My biggest concern right now is that the signature tests aren't passing.
I think something is going wrong with the jimage extraction. It may be a
configuration issue. I'll be working on this later today.

You might try the new sigtest fork that we moved into and just released an update

Regarding EL TCK was merged and could easily move into the EL Spec repo.


My aim is to get the EL TCK passing with Tomcat on both Java 17 and Java 21.
