Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
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.

marking for exclusion from release notes as per bug 1097065.

Comment 3 Miles Tjandrawidjaja 2014-07-04 14:32:52 UTC
I have a patch for this in jline. Would have to rebuild jline and update the jline versions in our installer poms to implement.

Comment 4 Petr Kremensky 2014-07-09 07:32:02 UTC
Re-adding the doc_text flag as it was removed due to beta RN.

Comment 5 Ahmed Abu Lawi 2014-10-09 13:59:27 UTC
We've moved from jline to aesh for the console installer.

Tab completion should now be available in Windows.
