Subject Problem: Using Jikes on NT with spaces in working directory
Date Tue, 04 Jul 2000 06:09:49 GMT

I've been encountering a problem using Jikes on NT
(ie. by setting the "build.compiler" property = "jikes")

It's not a simple matter of setting just this property; one
has to add the run-time library to the classpath as Jikes,
unlike javac, needs to know where to find it.

Jikes (version 1.11 on NT) hates spaces in the path to
the working directory.
I fixed this in my local copy by enclosing the parameter to the "-d"
argument to Jikes in the doJikesCompile() method, line 567:

        argList.addElement("\"" + destDir.getAbsolutePath() + "\"");

not specifically to do with this problem. The nightly snapshots
are empty zip files due to an error in the CVS committed code!

Please CC me on any replies.
