Description Charles Crouch 2012-02-13 15:46:02 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #754968 +++

Description of problem:
CLI is not able to accept arguments containing spaces.

rhq-cli.sh -f script.js "arg with spaces"

will be interpreted as if 3 arguments were passed to the script.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create script called argcnt.js with a single line "println(args.length);"
2. execute the RHQ CLI with the script and an argument "arg with spaces"
Actual results:
the script outputs "3"

Expected results:

    [BZ 754968] - making quoted arguments work with CLI on *nix.
    Windows startup script surprisingly seems to support this ok.
