I am using Apache Tomcat 8.0.0-RC3 Server and spring dispatcher servlet . I am getting 403 forbidden while using HTTP PUT method but HTTPGET method is working properly. I am trying to solve this with security constraint but it is giving me 409 conflict error because I am using spring dispatcher servlet and It is not working.But It is working perfect on tomcat 7 .Please help me to get rid of this .

Per the servlet spec, the default implementation for HttpServlet is to respond to PUT requests with a 405 Method Not Allowed (for HTTP 1.1 connections) or a 400 Bad Request (for all other connections).

You could still be getting a 403 based upon your security constraints. Can you post them here?

Try debugging to find what exact component sets that error code. (See Tomcat FAQ -> troubleshooting)

E.g.
a. Does the call reach DispatcherServlet, or it is rejected before that (e.g. by a security constraint).
b. A breakpoint in Response.sendError() might help.

Tomcat itself has examples that use PUT requests. You may check whether those work in 8.0.0-RC3.

a) Remote API of the Manager web application. It is usually used from Ant tasks. http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.0-doc/manager-howto.html

b) WebDAV servlet. http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-8.0-doc/api/org/apache/catalina/servlets/WebdavServlet.html

As far as I know, Tomcat by default does not accept PUT requests.
(Just think of what it really does; it would be a real security issue if it worked by default).
To accept PUT requests, you need an application that handles such requests specifically.
Can you share your code here?

To accept PUT requests, you need an application that handles such requests specifically. (For example : DAV). Are you sure that your problem is not because in Tomcat 7 you have an application which accepts PUT requests, but in Tomcat 8 you do not ?

I recently used the Perl Framework, which is a Perl centric Http test kit. I followed the instructions mentioned in the readme available within the framework which I checked out from the link

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/test/framework/trunk/

The readme states the following steps:
1. You need an installation of Apache. (Either 1.3 or 2.0)
2. Any DSOs you wish to use should be configured in that Apaches
httpd.conf (the test harness will pick this configuration up)
3. Setup:
perl Makefile.PL -apxs /path/to/apache/bin/apxs
4. Run the tests:
t/TEST
5. Evaluate test output.

However, I get an error when I get to the 3rd step saying;

"Cant open perl script "/Perl": No such file or directory"

Hope someone could clarify whats happening here.

I was curious as to why the following wget returns a 403/forbidden. The base url is accessed via the ff/chrome browser.. As far as I can tell/see, the cmd should match what the network is seeing regarding the headers/traffic.

wget -vvv --user-agent="Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0"  --cookies=on  --load-cookies=aa.lwp  --keep-session-cookies  --save-cookies=aa.lwp  --referer http://coursebook.utdallas.edu
