    JBoss 3.2.6 can't handle symlinking from inside an exploded

    Creighton Kirkendall Newbie

      I am having a problem getting symlinking to work in JBoss 3.2.6. I have tried setting the allowLinks attribute in my default context but this does nothing. If I set up a context for the application it does not have access to the JBoss class loader and this is not what I want.

      Below is my setup in the default context in the server.xml file.

      <Host name="MYWEB" autoDeploy="false"
       deployOnStartup="false" deployXML="false">
       <Alias>www.myweb.com</Alias>
      
       <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.AccessLogValve"
       prefix="MW" suffix=".log" pattern="common"
       directory="${jboss.server.home.dir}/log"/>
      
      
       <DefaultContext allowLinking="true" cookies="true" crossContext="true" override="true"/>
      </Host>
      
      


      Every thing else works fine.

      I tried creating a virtual path by creating a context directly to the physical location but this also faild. Is symlinking from exploded wars not possible?

      Thanks in advance!
