Java with maven wouldn't build: Cannot run program “cmd” “Malformed argument has embedded quote”




windows netbeans-11 (5)

I've a fresh install of netbean 11.1. Now I'm trying to build a project but I get the following error output:

Cannot run program "cmd" (in directory "C:\projects\open"): Malformed argument has embedded quote: "C:\Program Files\NetBeans-11.1\netbeans\java\maven\bin\mvn.cmd"

cd C:\projects\open; "JAVA_HOME=C:\\Program Files\\Java\\jdk-11.0.5" cmd /c "\"\"C:\\Program Files\\NetBeans-11.1\\netbeans\\java\\maven\\bin\\mvn.cmd\" -DskipTests=true -Dmaven.ext.class.path=\"C:\\Program Files\\NetBeans-11.1\\netbeans\\java\\maven-nblib\\netbeans-eventspy.jar\" -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 clean install\"" Cannot run program "cmd" (in directory "C:\projects\open"): Malformed argument has embedded quote: "C:\Program Files\NetBeans-11.1\netbeans\java\maven\bin\mvn.cmd" -DskipTests=true -Dmaven.ext.class.path="C:\Program Files\NetBeans-11.1\netbeans\java\maven-nblib\netbeans-eventspy.jar" -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 clean install

I've build this project with netbeans 11.1 before but have a new pc. and a fresh install, tho I'm sure there was no problem last time I tried to install everything.


Apache NetBeans 11.1 does indeed not support JDK 13, that's what the upcoming Apache NetBeans 11.2 is for -- latest beta: bit.ly/apache-netbeans-11-2-beta-3


At the time that I'm writing, I had only JDK13 installed only on my machine. After unzipped my netbeans I've got the same problem with the internal maven of my netbeans 11.1.

Apparently netbeans 11.1 does not work properly with the JDK13. I just installed the JDK 8 and the problem now is solved, without any additional configuration or parameter change.

Nontheless, since I need the JDK13, I have both installed but my netbeans.conf file is pointing to JDK8. Later, you can define the new Java platform in netbeans project configuration.

I hope this might help.

Cheers!


I had the same problem with oracle jdk 13.0.1 and netbeans 11.1, but it worked for me with openjdk 13.0.1 ( https://jdk.java.net/13/ ).


I have checked the release notes for JDK 13.0.1 at https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/13-0-1-relnotes-5592797.html#JDK-8221858

This behavior is a regression from a security fix for JDK-8221858 (not public). Follow the link for a full description. The fix is part of JDK 8u231, JDk 11.0.5, 13.0.1 etc.

To resolve this problem, append -J-Djdk.lang.Process.allowAmbiguousCommands=true to netbeans_default_options in <netbeans-dir>\etc\netbeans.conf .


The problem also occurs in version jdk-8u231. Fixing installing jdk-8u221 version
