Subject Re: Build fails when 'java' task's "arg line" contains a directory path with spaces
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2008 13:00:00 GMT
I'm surprised Andy's suggestion did not work, as it is the equivalent of
placing quotes around the individual arguments. Two things you could look
into: First, are you sure the java app you are running (com.abc.a in the
example) can handle spaces in filenames, and the bug is not in the program
itself? Second, have you tried inserting your own quotes into the argument
value, e.g. <arg line="'@{type} @{configDir}'"/> (note the single quotes
inside the doubles)? For instance, if com.abc.a uses the exec command
improperly, these might help. Looking forward to hearing your final
solution.
