    public interface WebResourceRoot
    extends Lifecycle
    Represents the complete set of resources for a web application. The resources for a web application comprise of multiple ResourceSets and when looking for a Resource, the ResourceSets are processed in the following order:
    1. Pre - Resources defined by the <PreResource> element in the web application's context.xml. Resources will be searched in the order they were specified.
    2. Main - The main resources for the web application - i.e. the WAR or the directory containing the expanded WAR
    3. JARs - Resource JARs as defined by the Servlet specification. JARs will be searched in the order they were added to the ResourceRoot.
    4. Post - Resources defined by the <PostResource> element in the web application's context.xml. Resources will be searched in the order they were specified.
    The following conventions should be noted:
    • Write operations (including delete) will only be applied to the main ResourceSet. The write operation will fail if the presence of a Resource in one of the other ResourceSets effectively makes the operation on the main ResourceSet a NO-OP.
    • A file in a ResourceSet will hide a directory of the same name (and all the contents of that directory) in a ResourceSet that is later in the search order.
    • Only the main ResourceSet may define a META-INF/context.xml since that file defines the Pre- and Post-Resources.
    • As per the Servlet specification, any META-INF or WEB-INF directories in a resource JAR will be ignored.
    • Pre- and Post-Resources may define WEB-INF/lib and WEB-INF/classes in order to make additional libraries and/or classes available to the web application.
    This mechanism replaces and extends the following features that were present in earlier versions:
    • Aliases - Replaced by Post-Resources with the addition of support for single files as well as directories and JARs.
    • VirtualWebappLoader - Replaced by Pre- and Post-Resources mapped to WEB-INF/lib and WEB-INF/classes
    • VirtualDirContext - Replaced by Pre- and Post-Resources
    • External repositories - Replaced by Pre- and Post-Resources mapped to WEB-INF/lib and WEB-INF/classes
    • Resource JARs - Same feature but implemented using the same mechanism as all the other additional resources.
    • Method Detail

      • getResource

        WebResource getResource​(String path)
        Obtain the object that represents the resource at the given path. Note that the resource at that path may not exist. If the resource does not exist, the WebResource returned will be associated with the main WebResourceSet.
        Parameters:
        path - The path for the resource of interest relative to the root of the web application. It must start with '/'.
        Returns:
        The object that represents the resource at the given path
      • getResources

        WebResource[] getResources​(String path)
        Obtain the objects that represent the resource at the given path. Note that the resource at that path may not exist. If the resource does not exist, the WebResource returned will be associated with the main WebResourceSet. This will include all matches even if the resource would not normally be accessible (e.g. because it was overridden by another resource)
        Parameters:
        path - The path for the resource of interest relative to the root of the web application. It must start with '/'.
        Returns:
        The objects that represents the resource at the given path
      • getClassLoaderResource

        WebResource getClassLoaderResource​(String path)
        Obtain the object that represents the class loader resource at the given path. WEB-INF/classes is always searched prior to searching JAR files in WEB-INF/lib. The search order for JAR files will be consistent across subsequent calls to this method until the web application is reloaded. No guarantee is made as to what the search order for JAR files may be.
        Parameters:
        path - The path of the class loader resource of interest relative to the the root of class loader resources for this web application.
        Returns:
        The object that represents the class loader resource at the given path
      • getClassLoaderResources

        WebResource[] getClassLoaderResources​(String path)
        Obtain the objects that represent the class loader resource at the given path. Note that the resource at that path may not exist. If the path does not exist, the WebResource returned will be associated with the main WebResourceSet. This will include all matches even if the resource would not normally be accessible (e.g. because it was overridden by another resource)
        Parameters:
        path - The path for the class loader resource of interest relative to the root of the class loader resources for the web application. It must start with '/'.
        Returns:
        The objects that represents the class loader resources at the given path. There will always be at least one element although that element may represent a resource that is not present.

        path - The path for the resource of interest relative to the root of the web application. It must start with '/'.
        Returns:
        The list of resources. If path does not refer to a directory then a zero length array will be returned.
      • listWebAppPaths

        Set<String> listWebAppPaths​(String path)
        Obtain the Set of the web applications pathnames of all of the files and directories located in the specified directory. Paths representing directories will end with a '/' character.
        Parameters:
        path - The path for the resource of interest relative to the root of the web application. It must start with '/'.
        Returns:
        The Set of resources. If path does not refer to a directory then null will be returned.
      • listResources

        WebResource[] listResources​(String path)
        Obtain the list of all of the WebResources in the specified directory.

        Returns:
        The list of resources. If path does not refer to a directory then a zero length array will be returned.
      • mkdir

        boolean mkdir​(String path)
        Create a new directory at the given path.
        Parameters:
        path - The path for the new resource to create relative to the root of the web application. It must start with '/'.

        Create a new resource at the requested path using the provided InputStream.
        Parameters:

      • setTrackLockedFiles

        void setTrackLockedFiles​(boolean trackLockedFiles)
        Controls whether the track locked files feature is enabled. If enabled, all calls to methods that return objects that lock a file and need to be closed to release that lock (e.g. WebResource.getInputStream() will perform a number of additional tasks.
        • The stack trace at the point where the method was called will be recorded and associated with the returned object.
        • The returned object will be wrapped so that the point where close() (or equivalent) is called to release the resources can be detected. Tracking of the object will cease once the resources have been released.
        • All remaining locked resources on web application shutdown will be logged and then closed.
