Subject [jira] [Created] (TAP5-2074) Extra leading slashes in URLs in HTTP 404 error pages
Date Sat, 23 Feb 2013 19:10:12 GMT
Dmitry Gusev created TAP5-2074:

             Summary: Extra leading slashes in URLs in HTTP 404 error pages
                 Key: TAP5-2074
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TAP5-2074
             Project: Tapestry 5
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: tapestry-core
    Affects Versions: 5.3.6
            Reporter: Dmitry Gusev

When implementing custom HTTP error page in Tapestry5 (like HTTP 404 error page described
here: http://tapestry.apache.org/error-page-recipe.html), all client URLs contain extra leading
slashes, which makes those links invalid.

By client URLs I mean URLs generated by tapestry for t:pagelink and all the assets (js, css,
images, etc.).

I had this bug in Tapestry 5.3.6 application deployed at Tomcat 7.0.29 as the ROOT context.

The problem seems to be in HttpServletRequest.getContextPath() which returns "/" when request
has been handled by ERROR dispatcher.

Here's the javadoc of org.apache.tapestry5.services.Request.getContextPath():

     * Returns the context path. This always starts with a "/" character and does not end
with one, with the exception
     * of servlets in the root context, which return the empty string.
    String getContextPath();

Default implementation of Tapestry5's RequestImpl.getContextPath() is simply delegates contextPath
retrieval to servlet API:

    public String getContextPath()
        return request.getContextPath();

Not sure if this is Tomcat or Tapestry bug, but Tapestry should definitely handle this situation.

As a temporary workaround I had to implement MethodAdvice for Request.getContextPath() in
my AppModule like this:

    public void adviseRequestContextPath(MethodAdviceReceiver receiver) throws SecurityException,
        if (!receiver.getInterface().equals(Request.class))
        Method method = receiver.getInterface().getDeclaredMethod("getContextPath");
        receiver.adviseMethod(method, new MethodAdvice()
            public void advise(MethodInvocation invocation)
                MethodInvocation proceed = invocation.proceed();
                if ("/".equals(proceed.getReturnValue()))
