    Description

      We’ve seen multiple problems with file operations on symbolic links on Java6 on Windows. Specifically:

      • File#length returns zero on symbolic links
      • File#renameTo renames the target, not the symlink

      Problematic scenarios are mainly related to symlinks created for dist cache.

      Java7 does not have above problems.
