Subject [jira] Created: (HARMONY-4754) [classlib] FilePermission incorrect canonical path

[classlib] FilePermission incorrect canonical path

                 Key: HARMONY-4754
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-4754
             Project: Harmony
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Classlib
            Reporter: Mark Hindess

If called with a path ending in "-" or "*", java.io.FilePermission calls  File.getCanonicalPath
with the "-" or "*" still appended.  This is incorrect (and produces very odd results if "-"
or "*" exists - perhaps as a symlink to some completely different tree).

For example, if you do:

  mkdir test
  ln -s /tmp test/-

 then (new FilePermission("test/-", "read")).implies(new FilePermission("/tmp/file", "read")
is true and (new FilePermission("test/-", "read")).implies(new FilePermission("test/file",
"read") is false where as on the RI it is the opposite way around since the '-' symlink is
(correctly) ignored.
