Hi Filip,

I have a vague recollection about tripping over this issue while working on the Tomcat support
in the Eclipse Web Tools Platform.  WTP has its own version(s) of VirtualWebappLoader, called
WtpWebappLoader, to address it.  If I'm recalling the issue correctly, pre-pending "file:/"
worked on Windows, but not on Linux since an absolute path ended up as "file://somedir/...".
 I believe with the change below, pre-pending "file://" will work for Linux, but not for Windows,
i.e. "file://C:/somedir/..." is going to have problems.  If it helps, I went with the URL
form "file:/somedir/..." and used the following code snippet to get it working for Windows
and Linux in WtpWebappLoader:


            String path = file.getAbsolutePath();
            if (path.startsWith("/")) {
                path = "file:" + path;
            } else {
                path = "file:/" + path;
            }
            if (file.isDirectory()) {
                addRepository(path + "/");
            } else {
                addRepository(path);
            }

Cheers,
Larry
