           Summary: ant.bat splits system properties passed by -
                    D<prop>=<val> option
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.5
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Wrapper scripts
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: urs.fiore.2@credit-suisse.com


The shift command used in the ant.bat script to iterate over the command line
splits options like '-D<prop>=<val>' into '-D<prop>' and '<val>'.
Such a
property will not be recognized by the java interpreter.

You may use follwing script to see the errorneous behaviour:
<<<cut into a file like param.bat>>>
@echo off

:readParam
if ""%1""=="""" goto end
echo %1
shift
goto readParam

:end
<<<end cut into a file like param.bat>>>

run: param.bat -Dperson=urs
