Doc Text:
In previous versions of JBoss EAP 6, tab completion for directory paths which start with a drive letter was not working in the console installer of JBoss EAP 6 on Microsoft Windows Server. When entering a path which starts with a drive letter, for example `C:\`, and pressing the +Tab+ key, nothing was shown. In this situation, it is expected that it will show the contents of that directory. This issue has been fixed in this release and tab-completion works as expected.

I have a patch for this in jline. Would have to rebuild jline and update the jline versions in our installer poms to implement.

Re-adding the doc_text flag as it was removed due to beta RN.
Comment 5 Ahmed Abu Lawi 2014-10-09 09:59:27 EDT
We've moved from jline to aesh for the console installer.

Tab completion should now be available in Windows.
