RE: cx:zip issue...

Hi Nic,

I'd be interested to learn them. Haven't had trouble using cx:zip otherwise myself, but I could run into that later on.

I did notice p:exec is quite picky with the command url too. Backslashes seem to behave as escape characters as well, not what I would have expected. The result is some weird exception, without further clues. I probably should file a bug report, haven't gotten around doing so..

Kind regards,

Hi Geert


I eventually worked it out myself (and found the bug report). I've got a couple of other issues that might be worth raising about zips - will see if I can work out obvious test cases.

That gave me the idea that the problem might be that cx:zip href attribute isn't expecting a uri to be passed in. Stripping off 'file:/+' and replacing '%20' by space did the trick for me. Not fail save, but good enough to get going..
