    Description

      Problem

      Undertow treats domain x alias matching case-sensitively. I believe it directly violates the contract of IETF RFC 1035.

      For instance, if one configures these two test applications simplecontext-examples.zip as root content for their respective aliases:

      <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:undertow:3.0" instance-id="workerXXX">
          <buffer-cache name="default"/>
          <server name="default-server">
              <ajp-listener name="ajp" socket-binding="ajp"/>
              <http-listener name="default" redirect-socket="https" socket-binding="http"/>
              <host name="default-host" alias="localhost">
                  <location name="/" handler="welcome-content"/>
                  <filter-ref name="server-header"/>
                  <filter-ref name="x-powered-by-header"/>
              </host>
              <host name="web1" alias="web1.rhel7GAx86-64">
                  <location name="/" handler="web1-content"/>
                  <filter-ref name="server-header"/>
                  <filter-ref name="x-powered-by-header"/>
              </host>
              <host name="web2" alias="web2.rhel7GAx86-64">
                  <location name="/" handler="web2-content"/>
                  <filter-ref name="server-header"/>
                  <filter-ref name="x-powered-by-header"/>
              </host>
          </server>
          <servlet-container name="default">
              <jsp-config/>
              <websockets/>
          </servlet-container>
          <handlers>
              <file name="web1-content" path="${jboss.home.dir}/simplecontext-web1"/>
              <file name="web2-content" path="${jboss.home.dir}/simplecontext-web2"/>
              <file name="welcome-content" path="${jboss.home.dir}/welcome-content"/>
          </handlers>
          <filters>
              <response-header name="server-header" header-value="WildFly/10" header-name="Server"/>
              <response-header name="x-powered-by-header" header-value="Undertow/1" header-name="X-Powered-By"/>
          </filters>
      </subsystem>

      , only requests exactly matching the alias land in the web application context, the rest of them goes straight to the WildFly welcome page, which is wrong:

        Undertow JBossWeb
      curl web1.rhel7GAx86-64:8080/
      curl web1.rhel7Gax86-64:8080/
      curl web1.rhel7gax86-64:8080/
      curl web1:8080/
      curl WEB1:8080/

      Call to action

      Could you evaluate this report and comment on whether the case sensitive matching is indeed intentional or not?
