Subject [PATCH] allow tomcat5 to compile/run with JDK1.3
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2003 00:59:43 GMT
Tomcat5 does not compile with JDK1.3. It does with JDK1.4.

There is only one line of code that prevents it from compiling with JDK1.3.
org.apache.catalina.loader.WebappClassLoader depends on File.toURI() 
which does not exist on jdk1.3.

I got around this by the performing the following:
   return realFile.toURI().toURL();
   return new URL("file:" + realFile.toURL().getPath());

My patch also has some spurious stuff because my text editor 
automatically strips all trailing whitespace from lines and converts 
tabs to spaces. The important stuff is the last 9 lines of the patch file.
