I have a workspace with lots of files in it, and recently I created a few symlinks to some of those file using the "accurev ln -s" command. When the AccuRev plugin tries to update its working directories and create those files, it creates empty, 0-byte files instead of symbolic links.
I've attached the relevant section from my catalina.out log file. I've scrubbed some names from it, but it should still be usable. At a glance, my guess is that it's using the "accurev cat" file to return the contents of each file in the update, which fails for symbolic links, and thus it just creates an empty file.
