Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-764) Locationmap returns relative paths
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2006 05:26:33 GMT
    [ ] 

Tim Williams commented on FOR-764:

I don't see how this is going to work.  I see several potential issues including absolute
paths in webapp mode, access permissions on a production machine, and no concept of formal
dependencies between plugins yet.  If a resource is used by more than one stylesheet why not
just promote it to a common webapp\resource anyway?

> It is intended (at least by me) to allow locationmaps to expose resources to other plugins.
For example, a stylesheet provided by one plugin may be used within another.
> Unfortunately, the location returned by a locationmap is relative, not absolute. Consequently,
when we try and access a resource from a sitemap other than the plugins sitemap the locations
are broken.
> What we need to do is provide an absolute location by pre-pending the path to the locationmap
file. For example:
> suppose /home/foo/locationmap.xml has:
> <match pattern="foo.xml">
>   <location src="bar/foo.xml"/>
> </match>
> The location returned for {lm:foo.xml} should be "/home/foo/bar/foo.xml" (at present
it is "bar/foo.xml")
