Subject RE: isVirtualWebappRelative not working
Date Thu, 17 Aug 2006 17:10:49 GMT
The problems, I was trying to describe appeared to be a bug - http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=39752

In my case I preferred to go back to Tomcat 5.5.9 where SSI works correctly, but in case other
people have the same problem the fix is available in SVN.

Martin, thanks for replying.

I agree with what you are saying, but my point is that <!--#include virtual="/head.html"
--> should work from any subdirectory
/Foo or /Foo/Moo or /Foo/Moo/TooFoo because the isVirtualWebappRelative parameter is set to
true. Which means the "virtual" path should be interpreted as relative to the context root.

If the current directory is /Foo or /Too/Moo, <!--#include virtual="/head.html" -->
should still work. 
if in /Foo, <!--#include virtual="../head.html" --> this will also work
in in /Foo/Moo <!--#include virtual="../../head.html" --> should work too

Setting isVirtualWebappRelative to true or false has worked fine for me with previous versions
of Tomcat, but not with Tomcat 5.5. This makes migrating sites very difficult. A developer
shouldn't be changing the code every time the web server version is upgraded.

Good Morning Ross-
If your path does not begin with a slash (/) then it is taken to be *relative to the current
document*

<!--#include virtual="/head.html" --> --Include head.html (head.html current location
loads correctly)
<!--#include virtual="/Foo/Foo.html" --> --Include in Foo.html (Foo.html loads current
location)

from Foo folder note the absence of "/" in the first position so this is the relative to current
document
<!--#include virtual="../header.html" --> --Include in the original head.html

NB:
Use #include virtual instead of #exec cgi to pass QueryStrings

More info available at
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_include.html

HTH,
Martin--

It just won't work for me. I have set up the value to 1 to make the path be interpreted as
relative to the context root, but I'm still getting the following output in catalina.out:
>
