Subject [CONTRIBUTED PATCH] org.apache.tomcat.util.FileUtil.safePath()
Date Wed, 29 Nov 2000 16:30:30 GMT

org.apache.tomcat.util.FileUtil.safePath() had a bug (at least from my point of 
view) that was preventing use of "\\machine\share" paths in context docBases, 
yielding a 404 on those contexts.

The patch was obtained with a "diff -u <old> <new>", I don't know if that's ok.

  I've made some testing, and the reasons that lead to safePath implementation 
in TC32 are still held, I believe (no paths fall outside docBase, case 
sensitiveness enforced, Win oddities like "*.jsp." prevented).  I haven't 
tested on *nix or netware, but the scope of the changes doesn't seem that big 
(but feel free to ignore them or apply only on the next bug fix release ;-)
