Description Osamu Nagano 2015-08-17 01:14:43 EDT
Description of problem:
In jboss-web.xml, <overlay> can be used to indicate a directory which is outside of the deployment.  But symbolic links in the overlay directory are not followed and 404 is returned.  This behaviour doesn't change even if <symbolic-linking-enabled> is enabled in the jboss-web.xml.
Comment 1 Osamu Nagano 2015-08-18 20:58:51 EDT
JBoss CLI has a command, deployment-overlay.  It can overlay files, but not directories.  Though this makes sense because a deployment can be remote.
Comment 8 Michael Cada 2016-03-09 11:06:13 EST
Verified on EAP 6.4.7.CP.CR2
Comment 9 Petr Penicka 2017-01-17 06:57:07 EST
Retroactively bulk-closing issues from released EAP 6.4 cumulative patches.
