Subject pointer to filename limitations in Java
Date Tue, 22 Mar 2005 10:43:58 GMT

Little heads up to a defect that is showing up in JAXB use: the max 
length of a path that java code (including Ant) can handle is 260 chars 
on a DOS/NTFS filesystem until Java1.6 ships some time

The full list of naming rules are here

It means there is an implicit set of extra filenames that any java code 
generator shouldnt be generating; deep file trees and things called are possibly on the forbidden list.
