Subject [jira] Created: (MPLUGINTESTING-9) BuildTool.executeMaven fails when local repository path contains spaces

BuildTool.executeMaven fails when local repository path contains spaces

                 Key: MPLUGINTESTING-9
             Project: Maven 2.x Plugin Testing
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: plugin-testing-tools
    Affects Versions: 1.2
         Environment: Windows XP, Cygwin
            Reporter: Mark Hobson

BuildTool.executeMaven is trying to execute the following command:

{noformat}cmd.exe /X /C ""C:\Program Files (x86)\apache-maven-2.1.0\bin\mvn.bat" -B "-Dmaven.repo.local="C:\Documents
and Settings\mark\My Documents\myproject\target\test-classes\repository"""{noformat}

Which fails with the following build log due to mismatched quotes:

[INFO] Scanning for projects...

[INFO] Invalid task 'and': you must specify a valid lifecycle phase, or a goal in the format

As you can see, my Maven installation path contains spaces, as so does my local repository
path.  It appears that the problem is that MavenCommandLineBuilder is trying to quote the
value of maven.repo.local which is confusing the already quoted -D argument.
