Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 51799] servletContext.getRealPath("/someFolderThatDoesNotExist/") should return null
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2011 12:16:09 GMT

My reading of the Servlet specification and Javadoc is that there is no
requirement for the path to exist, just for the container to map the virtual
path to a physical if such a mapping is possible.

I'll raise a bug against the Servlet specification to get this clarified but my
inclination is to resolve this as invalid.
