LightWave Server: Request returns 404 when a URI Path Component value contains the '.' or '*' character


When LightWave Server receives a request, if the API definition contains URI Path Component mappings, and the component value in the request URI contains the period (.) or asterisk (*) characters, the request will return a 404 error. Note that when the request is invoked by a browser based application, such as the LightWave Server Console API Tester, the error may be reported as a CORS or general security error instead of a 404.
