Subject AW: dumb question regarding servlets in packages running in tomca t.
Date Wed, 02 Aug 2000 06:47:28 GMT
That was not the point.

If there is a file COM\foo\bar.class with the 
package name why should that be a 
problem ?

There happens something like a partial lost
of information. I suspect that under Win*
somewhere deep inside the java vm or the
classloader of the servlet engine the upper 
case directory or package name gets converted 
in a lowercase name.

By the way:
I wouldn't use upper case letters for any top 
level domain because that can lead to further 
trouble as it is not possible to have COM and 
com in the same parent directory under Win*.
