Subject Re: [PATCH] Fix for nested <%@ include ... %> bug
Date Mon, 10 Jul 2000 22:46:42 GMT
You're right; I was projecting my own desires on my memory of the
spec. (I'd prefer it if you could get true no-look includes in JSP

JSP1.1, Section 2.5.2:
The JSP specification uniformly interprets all these paths in the
context of the Web server where the JSP page is deployed; i.e. the
specification goes through a map translation. The semantics applies to
translation-time phase (i.e. include directives, Section 2.7.6), and
to request-time phase (i.e. to include, Section 2.13.4, and forward,
Section 2.13.5,actions).

I wonder if that means that including inc/b.txt, where b.txt is
identical to your b.jsp, will include ./c.jsp or what...  

I'm not comfortable enough with Jasper to apply your patch, but if
someone else would be so kind...
