[kepler-dev] Java 1.5 with Kepler

BTW - I ran in to a similar problem when installing Quicktime for Java.
The problem is that the installation adds a string to the CLASSPATH
that has double quotes and backslashes

So, after installing Quicktime for Java, my CLASSPATH looks like
.;.;C:\PROGRA~1\JMF21~1.1E\lib\sound.jar;C:\PROGRA~1\JMF21~1.1E\lib\jmf.jar;C:\PROGRA~1\JMF21~1.1E\lib;C:\WINDOWS\java\classes;.;"C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_06\lib\ext\QTJava.zip"

This causes no end of problems with the Ptolemy II bin/ptinvoke

I hacked in a fix to ptinvoke.in, but I'm not that confident it will
work in all situations.



    Hi All,
        I was just testing Kepler with the recent Java release 1.5.-_01. 
    Kepler seems to run fine, but I did run into some issues with the 
    $JAVA_HOME environment variable on a Windows machine.
        The default install location for the Java 1.5 SDK has been moved to 
    the the 'Program Files\Java\' directory. This puts a 'space' into the 
    path. My first attempt resetting the JAVA_HOME variable was to set
    JAVA_HOME=C:\"Program Files"\Java\jdk1.5.0_01". This causes a problem 
    with ANT (which uses the JAVA_HOME variable. [Note that apparently the 
    Kepler build script sets JAVA_HOME but really never uses it.] However, 
    one can remove the quotes in the JAVA_HOME value and everything works 
    fine! So it looks like you should NOT add quotes when spaces occur in 
    environment variables on Windows XP
