Subject Diff behaviors for relative-path resource mapping in TC4 and TC5
Date Wed, 27 Sep 2006 03:49:33 GMT
   Saying i have the following web-app structure:
   in the web.xml, html/welcome.html is defined as one of the welcome-file,
which includes an image defined as src="./logo.gif". My question is which
logo will be shown when i try to access web-app? Seems TC4  (4.1.31) and
TC5 (5.1.12) handle this differently.
   In TC5, the request is mapped to html/welcome.html, but the context is
still at the root-level, so the logo.gif at root level is returned; while in
TC4, it will redirect to html/welcome.html, with the context changes to html
as well -- so html/logo.gif is returned. For me, it seems TC5 makes more
senses, but anyone can help me confirm this? (as is it a TC4 bug? a change
in the spec? etc?)

p.s. attached is the sample context-test, with logo.gif points to apache
logo, and html/logo.gif points to tomcat logo.
