Subject [jira] (MRELEASE-536) CommonBasedir Calculation fails on windows
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2012 12:53:36 GMT


Jose Rodolfo Freitas commented on MRELEASE-536:

Hey Guys, 
I'm on 2.3.2 version of the release plugin and I have this exact error. I suspect that the
exception is thrown by the same cause. 
Is this a zombie bug?

> The method getCommonBasedir in class org.apache.maven.shared.release.util.ReleaseUtil
runs into the Exception:\\
> java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1
> ... while comparing pathes with small and capital lettes for Windows drives.
> e.g.: C:\WoRkInG\root\project1 has no common base dir with c:\working\root\project2\\
but it should have c:\working\root as common base directory.
> A patch and a test for that bug is attached.
> I do have the problem with version 2.0 but I fixed it in trunk for now
