Release Note: Incorrect handling of quoted arguments in ProcessBuilder

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      ProcessBuilder on Windows is restored to address a regression caused by JDK-8250568.
      Previously, an argument to ProcessBuilder that started with a double-quote and ended with a backslash followed by a double-quote was passed to a command incorrectly and may cause the command to fail.
      For example the argument `"C:\\Program Files\"`, would be seen by the command with extra double-quotes.
      This update restores the long standing behavior that does not treat the backslash before the final double-quote specially.
