      Description

      We have changed the application context of a Jetspeed 2 portal from "/${artifactId}" to "/". Doing that, the Jetspeed portal runs perfectly but the Login portlet fails. The portal throws the following exception:

      javax.portlet.PortletException
      at org.apache.jetspeed.dispatcher.JetspeedRequestDispatcher.include(JetspeedRequestDispatcher.java:102)
      at org.apache.portals.bridges.common.GenericServletPortlet.doView(GenericServletPortlet.java:363)
      at javax.portlet.GenericPortlet.doDispatch(GenericPortlet.java:247)
      ......
      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 "${requestContext.request.contextPath}" 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.

      Regards.
