Subject [Bug 59001] Unable to load jar files when they have exclamation in the path
Date Tue, 16 Feb 2016 22:09:19 GMT

--- Comment #3 from Christopher Schultz <> ---
Honestly, I'm surprised that it's failing where it is: I would have expected it
to fail saying that "G:\TEST" didn't exist.

This isn't Tomcat doing this; it's the combination of a large number of
components all of which are using URLs for certain purposes. There are many
many corner cases where the JRE itself will fall-over even if Tomcat wasn't

I don't believe Tomcat massages any of the URLs it's processing, so there may
be an opportunity for Tomcat to escape the ! characters in an on-disk filename
(i.e. "!" -> "%21"). But like I said, there's always more and more edge-cases
and encoding once means possibly encoding multiple times (and sometimes having
to decode a few times, too). It's just a giant mess.
