Response truncated in the presence of special character

    Details

      Description

      When a servlet puts a session attribute containing a collection of strings, one of the strings contains a special character (for example: ...) and this string is displayed in a JSP, the resulting page is truncated before the special character.

      For example, in a servlet:

      ArrayList optionList = new ArrayList();
      ...
      optionList.add("Any string 1");
      optionList.add("Any string 2");
      optionList.add("Any string 3");
      optionList.add("Any string 4");
      optionList.add("A string with ... character");
      optionList.add("Any string 6");
      optionList.add("Any string 7");
      optionList.add("Any string 8");
      ...
      request.getSession(false).setAttribute("myList", optionList);

      In the JSP:

      <c:forEach var="currentOption" items="$

      {myList}

      ">
      $

      {currentOption}

      </c:forEach>

      The resulting page gets truncated before the 5th line.

      In JBoss 4.0.0 the page shows complete, with a ? sign in the place of the special character.

          When fixing stuff, please specify a fix version (the AS version that will include the fixed jbossweb)

          JBOSSWEB_2_1_5_GA : 2.1.5
          2.1.5 doesn't seem to be in any AS :-/ (for the moment at least).

          Needed a subsequent fix. 2.1.4 had a first fix, but 2.1.5 needed to correct the replacement character strategy.

          Where is this fix JBOSSWEB_2_1_5_ga: 2.1.5 at? I cant find it anywhere. We are using JBoss 4.2.0.GA and are experiencing the same truncation issue and would like to use the fix.
