JSE 6 Mustang

After ages we finally have a solution for path length > 255 on Windows. This is pure joy for all serious users of java on windows. Its such a legacy that we started coding around it.. catching this exception and detecting “ooh rats! the path length is too long…, go another route…”

More details here http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/Desktop/Mustang_build39.html#Libraries

Feature: java.io.File does not support long paths on Windows.
Bug ID: 4403166
Status: Delivered in b19
Description: Another longtime bugaboo for many developers, the issue with paths with more than 255 characters on the Microsoft Windows operating system has finally been resolved.

I’m really glad to see this fixed!
