we have a webservice where we intend to pass extra information as
pathinfo. we use a filter in front of the jaxrpc servlet to put the
http objects (req, res) into thread local space so we can access them in
the webservice code.

if i hit the web service w/o pathinfo, it works fine:


but if i hit


i get the following error from the client:

Exception in thread "main" javax.xml.rpc.soap.SOAPFaultException:
Missing port information
... etc ...

on the web container console, i see:

ERROR server.http - no endpoint specified

if i hit /far/bar/X in the browser, i get a nothing back, but no errors
(/foo/bar/ reports the web service status as always).

is it possible for me to utilize pathinfo in this manner?
