Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-5743) ServletContext.getRealPath() returns null
Date Mon, 15 Aug 2011 22:27:27 GMT


Kevan Miller commented on GERONIMO-5743:

In my opinion, we need to treat this as a high priority. Many apps assume that getRealPath()
will provide a meaningful result (non-null and usable). We're going to need to resolve this

> In 3.0 M1 and trunk, ServletContext.getRealPath() returns null. In previous versions
of Geronimo a real path was returned. Returning null is ok from specification point of view
but it breaks compatibility for applications. It also looks like there are a number of web
applications that rely on the getRealPath() to return a non-null value. One such application
is Nexus web app.
