Subject Re: File URLs will be the death of me
Date Fri, 14 Apr 2006 17:36:32 GMT
/ Alexander Pavlenko <alexander.pavlenko@db.com> was heard to say:
| Excuse me if I say obvious things but maybe it will help.
| "file" URLs usually should have one or three slashes following the scheme 
| name, not two.
| file:/path - means missing authority part
| file:///path - means empty authority name
| Both of the above imply the default authority:
| file://localhost/path
| If you use two slashes it means that you specify the authority explicitly 
| and in case of "file" scheme the authority means host name.

Yes, I understand the semantics. Unfortunately, file: URIs interact
badly with Windows style path names.

| By the way, I also actively use CatalogResolver and have encountered many 
| times that it returns incorrect URLs like
| file://c:/sofefolder/...

Could you try the patch I provided? I believe that I've plugged that
hole. But I've also believed that before.

| and...
| couldn't you use java.io.File.toURI()?  (J2SE1.4!)

I think XML Commons is still expected to support 1.3.
