cacheControl init parameter in eepsite/contexts/base-context.xml

base-context.xml trying to set the cacheControl init parameter, but it cannot achieve any results. Here is how correct base-context.xml should look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE Configure PUBLIC "-JettyConfigureEN" "">

Configure a custom context for the eepsite.

This context contains only a ServletContextHandler? with a default servlet
to serve static html files and images.

<Configure class="org.eclipse.jetty.servlet.ServletContextHandler?">

<Set name="contextPath">/</Set>
<Set name="resourceBase">/home/user/.i2p/eepsite/docroot/</Set>
<Call name="addServlet">

<Call name="setInitParameter">





<!-- Modified by I2P User dir migration script -->

Steps to reproduce:
"curl -v" shows no Cache-Control header with default base-context.xml

According to the Jetty 7 DefaultServlet? javadocs, the init param can either be as you have shown above, or in the ServletContext? (aka ServletContextHandler?) init params with a "org.eclipse.jetty.servlet.Default." prefix. The base-context.xml file we had for Jetty 6 had the prefix, but for some reason in the port to Jetty 7 I removed the prefix instead of changing it.

In the console, I left the old (mortbay) prefix in place, so it isn't working either, although almost nothing falls through to DefaultServlet? in any webapp.

Eepsite fix is for new installs only. Existing installs may manually edit ~/.i2p/eepsite/contexts/base-context.xml to change argument at about line 14 from:




Alternatively, move the setInitParameter section from near the top to near the bottom, as shown in the OP.

Then stop and restart the eepsite on http://localhost:7657/configclients .
