~ as separator in urls

2011-10-28 Thread martin.dilger
Hi, 

since https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WICKET-4061, we use ~ as
url-separator, this leads to enormous problems and prevents us from
upgrading from 1.5.0 to 1.5.1.

We have an apache which has mod_security enabled, and all Ajax-Requests are
blocked, the same could happen if an apache is active which has mod_userdir
active (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_userdir.html).

I would like to start a discussion, whether this is really a good idea to
use ~ as a separator.
In my mind, it is not since ~ has its own semantics and should not be used
as a separator.

What is your opinion?

Regards 

Martin

~ is allowed in the url path by http specs
do these Apache modules fail without letting the next module process the url ?

for example I'd expect from mod_userdir to check for existence of a
user with this name and if there is no such then let the request/url
be processed by the next Apache module.

Re: ~ as separator in urls

2011-10-28 Thread martin.dilger
Hi Martin,

thanks for your reply.
Well, could be, I´m not sure, what all these apache modules do, 
our problem is, that mod_security in apache denies all request with '~' in
the URL, what we get is 404, which per Default looks like the Application
would not respond on Button clicks, since no failure-handler is active.

I know, that '~' is generally allowed in uris, but I wanted to discuss
whether this is really a good idea.
I wonder, whether we are the only ones with this problem?

Regards

Martin
