Subject Tomcat 5.5.17 RMI MalformedURLException when installed in dir with Spaces
Date Sat, 24 Oct 2009 03:21:10 GMT
 I am seeing the famous MalformedURLException issue when my tomcat is
installed in the dir with Spaces. I am using Spring RMI. I see this issue in
Tomcat version 5.5.17 and Not 5.5.20 onwards.
 I don't have option to upgrade to 5.5.20, I am looking for a patch.

 I looked at the change log -, couldn't figure out
what has been fixed to address this issue.

The old defect -,
which is RESOLVED WONTFIX, some comment says fix is required in
ClassLoaderFactory. I've compared the ClassLoaderFactory between 5.5.17 and
5.5.20 and I don't see any difference. I also tried replace bootstrap.jar in
5.5.17 from the one in 5.5.20 but stilll run into malformed URL.
I am trying to figure it out by debugging by unavailability of source code
of sun.rmi.server making it bit difficult.

I need to figure out what has fixed that and get a patch for it. I am not
sure if patches are released for any critical issues. If I can know what did
fix it, may be I can build and create a patch myself.
Please help.
