tomcat 5 - cgi - execute .exe file
Posted on 2003-11-17
My problem is that I have a tomcat 5 installed, everything is set up right, use of Perl files in the cgi bin works fine.
But i want to execute a exe file.
Im developing with NetBeans IDE, with builtin tomcat 4.
When i test my things on the NetBeans Tomcat everything works.
I export the war file and put it into the webapps dir, it deploys and everything works, but the read.exe gives no result.
in the localhost_log i get the error: unrecognized character
I think the tomcat thinks that the .exe file is a perl script and tries to interpret it.
Where can i say "don´t interpret it just call it".
I uncommented the cgi lines in the web.xml
I have a servlet mapping in the context/web.xml
i renamed the servlets-cgi.jar
Please don´t tell me "use Apache to process cgi´s"
There must be a way to get this to work.
