The customer, in his deploy folder, has list of symbolic links pointing to a shared location where the actual pus are exploded.
When trying to deploy with 15.x version they fail since the copy of symlinks are not done as before due to change in the implementation of spring method: FileSystemUtils.copyRecursively
Reply from Spring: [spring-projects/spring-framework] Consistent use of NIO.2 for file read/write interactions (12114a9) Well spotted! Please create a separate GitHub for this. We'll try to address it ASAP, also considering backports to the 5.1.x and 5.0.x lines in our April round of releases.
pull request to Spring-Framework
the patch should be on top of 15.2 version
Our plan is to upgrade to Spring 5.2.5 or 5.2.6 - if it is the latter one, it will already include the pull-request thus I will not commit the fix to master branch of 15.5 - we should therefore re-check before releasing 15.5-ga
Since we did not upgrade to Spring 5.2.5 / 5.2.6 in 15.5 GA, I have ported the fix to 15.8, 15.5.1
Note that this fix is NOT part of 15.5 GA
