The javaee-api-7.0.jar doesn't appear to include
javax.servlet.LocalStrings.properties file (and its variants), even
though the javax.servlet classes use these resources. At any rate this
is true of the javaee-api-7.0 jars I've obtained via Maven or otherwise
In contrast all of the javax.servlet-api-3.1.0.jar archives that I've
found do include these properties files (and similarly have a
package.html file within javax.servlet that isn't present in the
Same is true of at least some other APIs (e.g. javax.faces) - the
individual API's jar includes properties files etc but the javaee-api
jar is purely the class files on their own.
Is this intentional for some reason, or a mistake?
