Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-5743) ServletContext.getRealPath() returns null
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2011 19:28:27 GMT


Jay D. McHugh commented on GERONIMO-5743:

Is this happening for Tomcat or Jetty (or both)?

And, is it returning null when you do not send it a parameter - or when there is a parameter
passed in too?

> 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.
