Some logic in the org.eclipse.equinox.http.servlet plugin to initialize


does not have any sense.

The alias is rightly calculated as:

requestUri.substring(contextPath.length() + servletPath.length());

by removing the contextPath and the servletPath from the requestUri.

However, the same alias is used later as input for the constructor of the
org.eclipse.equinox.http.servlet.internal.context.DispatchTargets class and it replaces the original requestUri value. Why??

As result, the contextPath and the servletPath values are lost when required by third-party software.

A real case: the Apache Felix Webconsole does not work in an Equinox Servlet Container with a servletPath.

If the original requestURI is:


The alias is rightly calculated: "/system/console"

However, the contextPath and the servletPath are lost and the Felix Web Console redirects for initialization to


instead of


Bests regards,

FYI: The Webconsole works with the older 1.1.500 version but not with the newer 1.6.600.

Can you provide a bit more details on the environment you are running this? I think you must be running from the servlet bridge inside a WAR, but I am not sure given your description.

If I try to switch from using the default '/' context root with the equinox.http.jetty support the web console still works for me. But I suspect that is different than what you are doing.
