Subject [jira] [Commented] (IO-295) FileUtils.isSymlinks misses symlink folders
Date Wed, 14 Mar 2012 03:03:18 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IO-295?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13228909#comment-13228909

Sebb commented on IO-295:
-------------------------

At present, the method always returns false for Windows systems.
Not sure whether it's possible to detect symbolic links on Windows (except by using Java 7
of course).

> Then, while debugging, I noticed that FileUtils.isSymlink() returns false on this directory,
while Java 7's Files.isSymbolicLink() returns true.
