Subject RE: javac, classpath with spaces
Date Mon, 07 Mar 2005 19:18:44 GMT
You wouldn't have any issues if you used a nested classpath which
separates each classpath element in a <pathelement>, instead of using a
property in a properties file.

But you can always replace "program files" by progra~1, i.e. the DOS
short name with no spaces. --DD
