Subject [jira] [Resolved] (JSPWIKI-735) Site names are case insensitive, ReferringPagesPlugin is case sensitive
Date Mon, 16 Jul 2012 13:44:36 GMT


Florian Holeczek resolved JSPWIKI-735.

       Resolution: Later
    Fix Version/s: FutureVersion

Hello Bertram,

this is known platform-specific behaviour and won't be fixed in the current backend architecture.

The root cause is the way Windows is handling case-sensitivity (see [1] for some more aspects
on that topic). During creation, the page LaTeX got saved as LaTeX.txt on the file system.
On Unix file systems, LateX.txt would be a different file, but not so on Windows. This is
why a link to LateX is leading to LaTeX on Windows, but would be recognized as a non-existing
page on Unix.

> I have a page named {{LaTeX}}, some pages refer to it and today I noticed that some point
to {{LateX}}.
> This leads to the same site, but the {{ReferringPagesPlugin}} shows only entries pointing
to {{LaTeX}} when opening {{LaTeX}} or references for {{LateX}} when opening {{LateX}}.
