Subject Help Linking Static Content In a WebApp before and after (6.0.30.x)
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2012 17:30:20 GMT
Tomcat Users:

Has anyone found a graceful way to handle static content linking that works=  both pre and
post the the following change?

We have quite a few customers on earlier versions of Tomcat 6 as well as ne= w customers picking
up later versions that are post this patch.  I am looki= ng for some kind of work around that
works in both generations.

Here is an example of what we are doing as far as static linking in our web= app.

So on older tomcat's (prior to 6.0.30)



both work to hit items in the root of the webapp so .../cms(as webapp)/css/= gopublish.css

On newer Tomcats: (Aka etc etc) http://localhost:7080/cms/default/css/gopublish.css


These (actually both work), but only if you have the appropriate folders cr= eated (static/default)

I can get it to work on either version, but I am looking for a "graceful" w= ay to have it
work on both versions.

I don't see that this problem can be worked around by servlet mapping or fi= lters, since
the core behavior has changed.

Our source (IE what we are calling the above assets from)

<link href=3D"../static/css/gopublish.css" media=3D"all" rel=3D"stylesheet"=  type=3D"text/css"
/> <link href=3D"../static/css/ui.css" media=3D"all" rel=3D"stylesheet" type= =3D"text/css"
/> <script src=3D"../static/js/jquery-1.3.2.min.js"></script>

<script src=3D"../static/js/jquery-ui.js"></script>

Any help or insight would be appreciated.
