Subject RE: Tomcat and path with pound sign (#) -> ClassNotFoundException
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2007 21:10:27 GMT
The # character starts a comment in the shell.  Try quoting the pathname, or put a \ in front
of the #.

I would bet that your mkdir and cd commands didn't do what you think they did.

Subject: Tomcat and path with pound sign (#) -> ClassNotFoundException


Hi there,

starting Tomcat from a path containing a pound sign (#) somewhere
results in a ClassNotFoundException.

I've checked this with
- Solaris Sparc/X86 + Mac OS X
- Java 5 + 6
- Tomcat 5.5.23 + 6.0.13

example:
- mkdir /export/home/markus/tomcat#1
- extract tomcat within this directory
- export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java (JDK 6)
- /export/home/markus/tomcat#1/apache-tomcat-6.0.13/bin/startup.sh
  or
  cd /export/home/markus/tomcat#1/apache-tomcat-6.0.13/bin ; ./startup.sh

output from catalina.sh with the java call (added set -x to catalina.sh
- i.e. no problem of the calling script omitting something)

/usr/java/bin/java

Although there is a rather old but maybe similar bug at:
http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4231042
i supose somewhere the road this has been fixed, as i have no problems
with JAVA 5/6 and other java programs otherwise my tests where flawed.

Installing the jdk in such a directory (e.g. /opt/java#6) works with
tomcat, too.

Can anybody confirm that "#" is still a special character (for tomcat)?
Unfortunately i'm somewhat forced to place tomcat installations/
instances into such (with #) directories.

Any fix possible?

thanks in advance!

kind regards,
   Markus
