Chris Wells created MNGSITE-375:
-----------------------------------

             Summary: Installation path on Windows
                 Key: MNGSITE-375
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNGSITE-375
             Project: Maven Project Web Site
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Chris Wells


[https://maven.apache.org/guides/getting-started/windows-prerequisites.html] says ...

> You need to install the Java SDK (e.g. from [Oracle's download site|http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html]),
and you should install it to a pathname without spaces, such as {{c:\j2se1.6}}.

 ... which is inconvenient if it's already installed, because that's not the default directory.

 [https://maven.apache.org/install.html] says ...

 ```
 * Check environment variable value e.g.

echo %JAVA_HOME% 
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51
```

... which contradicts the above.

One or other of these should be changed.

See also https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18724226/why-shouldnt-i-put-spaces-in-my-maven-path-in-windows
which is from 2010 and could be updated when you decide what the right answer is (i.e. whether
it's necessary to install into a path without space).
