Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-5216) CLONE -getContextRoot() returns forward slash rather than empty string for apps deployed to root context
Date Tue, 30 Mar 2010 15:01:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-5216?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12851427#action_12851427

Jay D. McHugh commented on GERONIMO-5216:
-----------------------------------------

Hey Matthias,

It looks like this must be a problem with how the tag library is processing the <c:url>
tag.

I will try to take a look as soon as I have some time.
