Description Konstantin Kolinko 2015-01-26 10:10:31 UTC
A minor glitch in the examples.

The file \webapps\examples\jsp\jsp2\jspx\svgexample.html in Examples web application has the following text:

      <li>Copy the following URL:
      <a href="http://localhost:8080/examples/jsp/jsp2/jspx/textRotate.jspx?name=JSPX">

If Tomcat runs on a different port number, the above link to localhost:8080 becomes wrong. I noted this when doing a recursive download (wget -r) of the examples webapp.

To fix this one has to convert this static HTML page into a JSP one.

Or just use a relative reference. This should be easy, as the two documents are in the same directory (i.e. no "..", etc. needed).

Fixed in trunk and 8.0.x for 8.0.19 onwards.

I used a relative link and re-worded the surrounding text so a full URL was not required.
