<TITLE>New user question - problem with '~' character in paths?</TITLE>
<!-- Converted from text/plain format -->

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Hello all,</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>I am in the midst of muddling through an installation/configuration
of tomcat for the purposes of integrating with our Xpedio Content Server software for a prospect.
I have come across what I think is a problem, and would appreciate any feedback.</FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>It seems that the JSP interpreter doesn't like any .jsp files
residing in a location where the path contains the '~' character. As an example, I am placing
.jsp files (just doing simple includes at this stage) into a directory with the following

<P><FONT SIZE=2>/xpedio/groups/public/documents/haysworks/~000301/jsptest.htm</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>where /xpedio is mapped as a virtual directory in IIS</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>When I try to access this .jsp file, I get the following error
from tomcat:</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Internal Servlet Error:</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for
JSPerror: Can't write: C:\jakarta-tomcat\work\localhost_8080%2Fxpedio\groups\p_00025blic\d_00025cuments\haysworks\_0007e_00030_00030_00030_00033_00030_00031\_0002fgroups_0002fpublic_0002fdocuments_0002fhaysworks_0002f_0007e_00030_00030_00030_00033_00030_00031_0002fjsptest_0002ejspjsptest_jsp_0.class</FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>1 error</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>However, if I simply move my .jsp file into the parent directory
so that the path is</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>/xpedio/groups/public/documents/haysworks/jsptest.jsp</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>The .jsp file is interpreted fine with no problems.</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2>Is this a know issue/limitation?</FONT>
