[OpenMap Users] VPFLayer filename case sensitivity problem with DNC maps

Hey Don and VPF users

We seem to have run into a filename case sensitivity issue on Unix (Solaris 8) using DNC. We have a DNC16 map of the Bahamas on CD, our application can view it ok when run under Windows. However, when run on Solaris, we get an error message from com.bbn.openmap.layer.vpf.VPFLayer that it can not find the "lat." file. The database table files exists as upper case "LAT" and "DHT" on the CD. When we copy it to the hard drive and rename that file to "lat.", then it complains about the DHT file not being lower case. If we rename that one, it gets us past that error, but on to another case sensitivity problem.

The funny thing is that the VMAP, which uses the same layer, works fine on both Windows and Solaris. The VMAP tables are also named with upper case "LAT" and "DHT" on the CD. Both CDs are original maps from NGA (NIMA).
Is there a workaround for this?
