Hi All Recently while running a remote object in java 1.4.2 version(even 1.5) with argument for java.rmi.server.codebase property as file:// followed by complete path of a jar file , I got a Filepermission related exception (Also Security Exception )
BUT when i used 3 slashes instead of 2 it works
BUT my point is that it works very well with 2 slashes in java 1.4.1 version
Please can any one shed some light on this ; as to why it works with 1.4.1 and not 1.4.2 version of java. The policy files seem to be same (java.policy)
Are you *sure* that it used to work with two slashes? As I mentioned in this thread, I've always had to use three slashes, and Tim Holloway was good enough to tell why three slashes were needed... and it's always been a part of the protocol.
