does anyone know how to solve this case sensitive/insensitive filename problem?
I only known a case insensitive filename for example "myfile.txt". Actually the file is stored as "MYFILE.txt".
On windows I can open it regardless of how it is actually stored and with the getCanocialPath method I get the real filename.
File file = new File("/myfile.txt"); System.out.println( file.getCanonicalPath()); // output: "/MYFILE.txt"
Trying this on Linux with an Samba share, does also open the file, but I don't get the real filename.
File file = new File("/myfile.txt"); System.out.println( file.getCanonicalPath()); // output: "/myfile.txt"
The linux console does show the filename "MYFILE.txt" so I don't think it's a samba problem. Is there a way to get the real filename?

*nix operating systems including Linux are case-sensitive. That is, the file names "myfile.txt" and "MYFILE.txt" would refer to two different files.
