Description summersb 2009-04-30 17:52:03 UTC
If I change my Local Repository in the options dialog to something with a space the build fails

NetBeans: Executing 'cmd /c C:\Program Files\apache-maven-2.1.0\bin\mvn.bat -Dnetbeans.execution=true
-Dmaven.repo.local=C:\Documents and Settings\summersb\.m2\repository install'
NetBeans:      JAVA_HOME =C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_13
'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I am using 6.7 Beta

If I leave the local repo empty (default) it works.
Comment 1 Milos Kleint 2009-05-06 09:46:39 UTC

the problem was in execution via cmd /c (introduced by for for issue 153101)
now we quote the local path parameter (and maven command line path as well) so both shall work.
we also fallback to cmd /c only if access right problems occur.
Comment 2 Milos Kleint 2009-05-06 09:51:36 UTC
jpospisil: please test extensively and report any space in path problems on windows. thanks.
Comment 3 Jaroslav Pospisil 2009-05-06 10:13:35 UTC
Well, some of the space_in_path test cases are harder to reproduce on Win Vista, since default user directory, where .m2
repository folder is generated is different from XP version (C:\Documents and Settings\... versus C;\Users\...) and I
suspect i will find some of such issues when I switch to Win XP testing platform, which is planned soon. I will look at
this area thoroughly,at this time.
In this case,however, I think this issue could have cause similar to issue 161670 .
Comment 4 Milos Kleint 2009-05-06 10:20:16 UTC
yes, 161670 is related, I've made the fix more generic though.
Comment 5 Quality Engineering 2009-05-09 06:59:55 UTC
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200905090201* on (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #164234, #153101 quote property values containing spaces on windows, use cmd /c for execution only if failing without it. cmd /c has negative effect of quoting property values
