Subject [jira] Commented: (FELIX-383) getResource()/getResources() called on "/"
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2007 16:15:50 GMT

Costin Leau commented on FELIX-383:

Hmm - but if the constructed URLs can fail? Since getResources() returns URLs which point
to different classpath roots, using each of these URLs will lead to a different classpath
which might contain or not the items you are interested in.
For example you get bundle://1.1/ and bundle//1.2/

If you reuse the URL then you'll just be looking into classpath 1 rather then all classpath-es.
So if you look for /foo/bar and you try in classpath1 you'll fail but if you try in classpath
2, you will find it for example.
The thing is getResources() is suppose to return a set of items which match a name while getResource()
has to return only one item so in case of
getResources() I think it's okay if several URLs do not find the /foo/bar since they are actually
different classpathes while in case of getResource()
the URL (only one) - it's a unified one.

How is this issue any different then a normal getResource("/foo") - what if I want to build
another URL to /foo/bar using the previous URL found?
