Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 3
Apache 1.3.3

jdk1.1.7
>Description:
Relative zone and secretkey property files are relative to where the Java home
directory is not the Server root directory.  For example, if my wrapper.bin is
is c:/jre1.1.7/jrew and I specify a server root of d:/ with ApJServProperties set
to conf/jserv.properties, the jserv wrapper uses ap_server_root_relative to 
qualify the path to the config file yielding d:/conf/jserv.properties.  When
the JServ class references relative files from the jserv.properties file, such
as, zone=root and root is conf/zone.properties, it does not quality the path 
at all. The class simply tries to open the file, in this case, yields
c:/zone.properties which fails.  The JServ class should resolve relative files
to either the Server Root Directory or the directory from which the 
jserv.properties file was read.
>How-To-Repeat:
yes.  Specify a server root in a different directory tree than your current
directory.
>Fix:
A quick fix is to use a path relative to the ApJServProperties files which is
passed in the init routine of the JServ class.  Thus, all relative files would
be relative to the property file or find the server root directory somehow.

Attached is a context diff for the former case for the zone file:

                  fail("No configuration file for servlet zone " + servletZone);
              }
+ 	    if (confFile.charAt(1) != ':' && confFile.charAt(0) != '/')
+ 	      confFile = configFile.substring(0, configFile.lastIndexOf('/')) 
+                          + "/" + confFile;

              if (log.active)
                  log.log(CH_SERVLET_MANAGER, " - Configuration file: " + confFile);
