Either I'm not getting it right at this time of the day or something is wrong here. At least the documentation delivered with 2.2.28 is questionable on the topic of ShortViewURLConstructor and ShortURLConstructor:

The documentation says you may set jspwiki.shortURLConstructor.prefix, but in my opinion you must set it - even to an empty value, because otherwise it adds 'null' to the path of generated urls.

I'd like some confirmation from others before I'd change this on http://doc.jspwiki.org/2.2/wiki/ShortViewURLConstructor - comments? Are there other options that I've missed?

You're right. Fixed in 2.2.29.

-- JanneJalkanen

I am confused: the comment above was written in July. where can I get 2.2.29? 2.2.28 still is the last version that can be downloaded as of end of August.

It's fixed in a version that is named (at least) 2.2.29 which will be available as soon as it is released - unfortunately that's not yet ;-)

I believe that Janne doesn't want to release too often if there are no FatalBugs or CriticalBugs (probably BadBugs) fixed. This is only a LightBug

I have JSPWiki v2.4.85-cvs running with the DefaultURLConstructor and container-managed security, context root is wiki.

When I try the ShortViewURLConstructor and access

http://linux:8080/wiki
it redirects to
http://linux:8080/wiki/Login.jsp?redirect=Main

When I log in I am at http://linux:8080/wiki/wiki/Main and the CSS is not found.

The HTML source shows @import url(templates/mine/mine.css) which definitely is not right.

Same for ShortURLConstructor.

So, it seems there is something broken with ShortViewURLConstructor and ShortURLConstructor together with container-managed security.

Entirely possible. I'll make a note of this - it looks like we're doing a redirect to a relative URL instead of absolute.

The JSPWiki gives error 404 whenever I set ShortViewURLConstructor prefix as "help". The tips in Glassfish Wiki » ShortURLConstructor solved my problem by suggesting to add the following lines in web.xml:
   <servlet>
       <servlet-name>WikiServlet</servlet-name>
       <servlet-class>com.ecyrd.jspwiki.WikiServlet</servlet-class>       
   </servlet>

   <servlet-mapping>
       <servlet-name>WikiServlet</servlet-name>
       <url-pattern>/help/*</url-pattern>
   </servlet-mapping>

Now I have a working shortViewURLConstructor!
