I am sorry, but Alexey is incorrect.
The reason that you see this odd behaviour is that
ant on windows uses a batch file to run ant.
It is nearly impossible to write a sane bat file
due to the bizarre and crazy nature of bat files.
- just see the endless stream of ant.bat related
bug reports.
It appears however that some of the changes
to ant1.7's bat file has fixed the problem
When I do this:
ant.bat -f echo.xml -Dc="a=b"
I get:
c is a=b
similar with ';'
Without the "" I see the behaviour you are seeing:
ant.bat -f echo.xml -Dc=a=b
Target "b" does not exist in the project "null".
Marking as fixed.
