Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-6693) Start script for windows fails with 32bit JRE
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2014 22:29:34 GMT


Mark Miller commented on SOLR-6693:

On a bit of reading, I believe it's part of the windows jdk/jre install and that it acts like
/bin/java might - it will be found on the path and it looks in the registry to launch the
configured java executable.

>                 Key: SOLR-6693
>                 URL:
>             Project: Solr
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: scripts and tools
>    Affects Versions: 4.10.2
>         Environment: WINDOWS 8.1
>            Reporter: Jan H√łydahl
>              Labels: bin\solr.cmd
>             Fix For: 5.0, Trunk
> *Reproduce:*
> # Install JRE8 from (typically {{C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_25}})
> # Run the command {{bin\solr start -V}}
> The result is:
> {{\Java\jre1.8.0_25\bin\java was unexpected at this time.}}
> *Reason*
> This comes from bad quoting of the {{%SOLR%}} variable. I think it's because of the parenthesis
that it freaks out. I think the same would apply for a 32-bit JDK because of the (x86) in
the path, but I have not tested.
> Tip: You can remove the line {{@ECHO OFF}} at the top to see exactly which is the offending
> *Solution*
> Quoting the lines where %JAVA% is printed, e.g. instead of
> {noformat}
>   @echo Using Java: %JAVA%
> {noformat}
> then use
> {noformat}
>   @echo "Using Java: %JAVA%"
> {noformat}
> This is needed several places.
