With JDK1.4.2_12 and higher release, we are seeing some unique problem for getResourceAsStream method. The issue is if one has a resource inside a jar file has spaces in the path we cannot access that resource. As seen in the attached example I have tried two methods and both of them have failed to yield any results. I have attached source code and other required jar file for your testing.

(See attached files: TestClassLoader.class, TestClassLoader.java and test.jar)

Command to run the test

java -classpath .;test.jar TestClassLoader

This issue is not present with 1.4.2_11, 1.5.0_10 AND 1.6.0

SUGGESTED FIX for reference - the final fix was : http://jpsesvr.sfbay.sun.com:8080/ctetools/html/ViewDetail.jsp?index=2140

SUGGESTED FIX cobra1 $pwd /cobra/sean/1.4.2/j2se/src/share/classes/java/net cobra1 $sccs diffs JarURLConnection.java ------- JarURLConnection.java ------- 15a16 > import sun.net.www.ParseUtil; 162a164 > entryName = ParseUtil.decode (entryName); cobra1 $

EVALUATION Re-opening this CR. Regression would seem to have occurred as a result of 4845728 fix. Several ParseUtil.encode statements are added. Without correct decoding in JarURLConnection class our testcase fails.

EVALUATION Looks like this is a duplicate of 5103449
