      Description

      When the path to the external executable in <executable> contains space(s), the build will fail: the command is misunderstood because it stops at the first space encountered.

      Example:
      <executable>C:\Program Files\java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin\javac.exe</executable>
      The plugin will try to execute "C:\Program" instead.

      On windows the only workaround I know of is:
      <executable>C:\PROGRA~1\java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin\javac.exe</executable>

        Could someone verify if this is still a problem? With Windows7 I'm not able to reproduce this issue.
        The problem should be caused by the plexus-compiler. Meanwhile we've already updated its version from 1.6 (used by maven-compiler-plugin-2.1) to 1.8.2. Strange enough Plexus' Jira doesn't refer to such an issue.
