Description Peter Jodeleit 2007-06-15 05:08:34 UTC
If the context path of an application contains slashes (e.g. "a/b") the method
getPathWithoutContext of class
org.apache.catalina.ssi.SSIServletExternalResolver simply cuts from the second
slash, so for url "/a/b/do?.." it tries to include "b/do?.." instead of "do?..".

The patch is to include the context path and strip the path off:

Line 419
String noContext = getPathWithoutContext(normContext.getContextPath(), normalized);

Line 356ff
protected String getPathWithoutContext(final String contextPath, final String
servletPath) {
   if (servletPath.startsWith(contextPath)) {
      return servletPath.substring(contextPath.length());
    return servletPath;

Thanks for the patch. It has been applied to trunk and proposed for 6.0.x.
