We have changed the application context of a Jetspeed 2 portal from "/$
" to "/". Doing that, the Jetspeed portal runs perfectly but the Login portlet fails. The portal throws the following exception:
Caused by: javax.servlet.ServletException: In URL tags, when the "context" attribute is specified, values of both "context" and "url" must start with "/".
The problem is that the "context" attribute of the "<c:url />" tag cannot have an empty value. The empty value is returned by the "$
" expression (see the Servlet API::HttpServletRequest.getContextPath() to know the reason).
We have attached a patch that fix this bug. In addition to this patch, the JSTL API and implementation must be upgraded to jstl-1.1.1.jar and standard-1.1.2.jar.
