Subject Invalid flag error when the tomcat installation path contains blank spaces.
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2003 18:48:08 GMT
Hi, I' m using the tomcat 4.24 and I detect a problem if install it  in a
path that contains blank spaces. I always receive the error detailed bellow
when I try to compiles a JSP.

I see in the Mailing Lists some workaround like install Tomcat in a
directory that not contains blank spaces, etc.

However, my situation is little different. I have an application that uses
Tomcat's API to start a Web Application inside the same Virtual Machine. In
this case, none of the suggested workarounds could be applied.

I read in the Tomcat Mailing Lists that previous version as 4.18 supports
blank spaces in the path.
Some person opens the bug
( that is similar.
However, it was closed like invalid. L

In windows, locations like (<drive>:\Program Files and <drive>:\Documents
and Settings) are very common.  I could not prohibit the user install my
application in paths that contains spaces.

I really appreciate some solution or a workaround that help me to continue

Thanks in advance for your help.
