Subject [jira] [Commented] (EXEC-83) Arguments with spaces lead to quotes in arguments in bash
Date Wed, 19 Feb 2014 20:17:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/EXEC-83?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13906013#comment-13906013
] 

Kevin Brown commented on EXEC-83:
---------------------------------

Here is my workaround: 

CommandLine commandLine = new CommandLine("/bin/sh");
commandLine.addArgument("-c", false);
commandLine.addArgument(script, false);
commandLine.addArgument(id, false);
commandLine.addArgument("one two three");   //double quotes will screw up our bash script
and double mixed with 
commandLine.addArgument(url, false);

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/EXEC-83
>             Project: Commons Exec
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.2
>         Environment: Java 7 & OSX 
>            Reporter: Kevin Brown
>            Priority: Minor

> If I run my script directly from a bash prompt I see a different behavior than if I launch
with commons-exec.  This may be the nature of the beast (java Runtime-exec interacting with
bash), but leads me to have to rewrite scripts to remove extraneous quotes.
> Here is my script:
> $ cat ./foo.sh
> #!/bin/bash
> echo "$@"
> case I: commons-exec with no spaces ==> arguments do NOT have quotes when in bash
script
> cmdLine=[/opt/bmam/bin/avidcommand/write_xmp_remote.sh, 70059021, RAW-one_two_three,
http://foo.com]
> output (of $@):
> 70059021 RAW-one_two_three http://foo.com
> case II: commons-exec with spaces ==> arguments have quotes when in bash script
> cmdLine=[/opt/bin/foo.sh, 70058269, "AIR-one two three", http://foo.com]
> output (of $@):
> 70058269 "AIR-one two three" http://foo.com
> case III: execute directly from bash ==> arguments do NOT have quotes when in bash
script
> $./foo.sh 70058891 "one two three" http://foo.com
> output (of $@):
> 70058891 one two three http://foo.com
