Filename containing illegal character been allowed to open...?
I've just stumbled across this weird issue.
Our project is using an auto file name creation process, appending a series of strings together to produce our file name.
I stumbled across an issue with the filename being allowed to contain, which should be, an illegal character under windows (":"), except File.exists returns true on the file and we can open the file using an InputStream and read the contents.
I've done a local search for the file (including searching for it's contents) and can't seem to find, but Java is allowing the file to be created somewhere.
Has anybody else had a similar issue or know why this been allowed to occur?
