Bug Description

[Impact]

 * There was a software bug in the 8.0.32 release of tomcat8, subsequently fixed in 8.0.33, with acessing past the end of a string.

[Test Case]

 * The apache bug provides a test case.

[Regression Potential]

* This is a strict backport from upstream of a bugfix. The regression potential is very low, as the current tomcat8 code is broken.

Tomcat 8.0.32, which is shipped with xenial, has serious ClassLoader issues (https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=58999)

Please provide a newer version through the packages.

We will take a look at backporting the suggested change to 8.0.32, as appropriate. Thank you for the report!

Any news on xenial upgrade ?

Note that this bug makes pretty much impossible to use Jython in a web app on Xenial.

Note: I have several people reported that it works well with https://launchpad.net/~nacc/+archive/ubuntu/tomcat8v2 so it would be great to apply it in the default repository :)

Hello Nish Aravamudan,

I encounter this problem on Xenial.
Can you patch it like you did for Yakkety ?

Thanks,
Jean-Sébastien
