please attach installation log (~/.nbi/log/<timestamp>.log) and netbeans log 
file (~/.netbeans/dev/var/log/messages.log).

Comment 5 dlipin 2007-05-29 14:48:16 UTC
Due to the investigations I can say that the issue is in the netbeans.conf 
Now we set the following strings to add appserver instance (on unix):
SUNWappserver\" ..."

If I change it to the following string then everything works fine:
SUNWappserver ..."

Comment 7 dlipin 2007-05-30 10:21:56 UTC
According to the SystemProperties module the same property 
com.sun.aas.installRoot in M9 is set to /home/username/
SUNWappserver and in nightly builds to "/home/username/
SUNWappserver" (with quotes) using the netbeans_default_options string in 
Comment 8 dlipin 2007-05-30 10:31:53 UTC
I do think that the following changes in nbexec have broken the working in m9 
functionality of AS/AM integration:

Commit message :
Stronger quoting of -J* options, meaning you can now pass e.g.
(quoted appropriately for your invoking shell) and expect it to work.
Comment 9 dlipin 2007-05-30 10:46:00 UTC
I`ve written the following class:
class Test {
    public Test() {
    public static void main(String[] arguments) {
	System.out.println("" + System.getProperty("property"));

> java -Dproperty=VALUE Test
> java -Dproperty="VALUE" Test
> java -Dproperty=\"VALUE\" Test

Using the second variant in netbeans.conf is equal to 

Earlier the value of property was correct (VALUE)
In the current implementation it is incorrect ("VALUE").
Since the latest changes in nbexec do not process correctly the quoted values I 
reassing the issue the launcher and to Jesse specifically.
Comment 10 tonybeckham 2007-05-30 22:44:41 UTC
Removing quotes in netbeans.conf for AM_CONFIG_FILE and com.sun.aas.installRoot
does not work for me on any *nix.  Also removing the "\" before does not help
either on Mac, Linux, Solaris.
Comment 11 tonybeckham 2007-05-31 18:39:59 UTC
work around works for me now, also must delete user dir after editing
netbeans.conf for it to work.
Comment 12 Jesse Glick 2007-06-01 01:01:47 UTC
It is true that adding e.g.

  -J-Duser.dir=\"/tmp/foo bar\"

into netbeans_default_options in etc/netbeans.conf does not work. However it
does not work for me with nbexec 1.47 reverted, either (in fact it is worse).

Note that you can pass

  -J-Duser.dir='/tmp/foo bar'

on the command line and it works; the problem is with nb_d_o.

Frankly I do not see any way to fix, other than never adding quotes to values in
nb_d_o, and rejecting any appserver installation dir using spaces. More clever
patches from someone with Bourne shell experience are welcome. I tried various
combinations of quotes and backslashes without success.

I'm not sure what the significance of the attached test class is. The problem is
not in Java code, it is in shell scripts, which cannot very reliably handle
spaces or quotes.
Comment 13 Kirill Sorokin 2007-06-01 08:34:05 UTC
Well, I assume it would be easier to fix on our side. We wil switch to single
quotes (') for wrapping parameter values. And will not use them is there are not
spaces in the path. 

This will give us a reasonable success percentage, I guess.
Comment 14 Jesse Glick 2007-06-01 15:08:39 UTC
I could not get single quotes to work either.
Comment 15 Kirill Sorokin 2007-06-01 15:19:33 UTC
Jesse, I don't know what has happened. Nothing changed on our side and it DID
work for M9 and before. I don't know which build was the first with this
functionality broken. I will look into it a bit further.

Spaces might be not that common, but they are valid and nbexec should be
supporting them IMO.
Comment 16 Jesse Glick 2007-06-01 16:02:45 UTC
So to clarify: my most recent patch just fixed handling of -J* parameters which
included substitutable metachars such as $, by single-quoting them. (Obviously
params including ' itself would be broken by this change, but I consider that
less likely than $.) Parameters just including spaces worked with or without the
patch, if you passed them directly on the command line, e.g.

.../bin/netbeans -J-Dkey='some value'

My patch just made this work too:

.../bin/netbeans -J-Dkey='some$value'

whereas previously 'key' would be incorrectly set to 'some'.

As far as I can tell, parameters with embedded spaces did not work in
netbeans_default_options to begin with, i.e. not a regression.

I *think* I know how to fix this now, using eval. It's always scary to make any
metachar-handling changes in the launcher scripts, since some kind of regression
is quite likely, but let's try.
Comment 17 Jesse Glick 2007-06-01 21:05:35 UTC
Please verify, and I'll see if complaints start coming in.
