EAP 6.1.0.Alpha (7.2.0.Final)
when creating a symbolic link inside a deployed ear/war the symbolic link's target is not followed when
accessing it from a web browser
in jboss-as/standalone/deplyoment/somedomain.ear/files we created a symbolic link named "version.js"
which points to /usr/share/something/version.js
the target file (/usr/share/...) is accessible by all (chmod'd to 777) and is readable by the jboss-as user which runs
the Jboss application server.
when accessing http://domain:8080/something/files/version.js we get an 404 error, seems like the file is not found by
when placing the file instead of symbolic link, the file is accessible and all is well
