      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      C:\z-harvest\AHarwebInstall\Build\!test>java -version
      java version "1.5.0_01"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_01-b08)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_01-b08, mixed mode, sharing)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      C:\z-harvest\AHarwebInstall\Build\!test>ver

      Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

      EXTRA RELEVANT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION :
      My working directory, containing the executable jar, is:
      C:\z-harvest\AHarwebInstall\Build\!test

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      My working directory contains a "!" (exclamation) in the name.

      ResourceBundle.getBundle() causes an exception when the application is launched from the application jar.

      If the application is unpackaged and run - the application works properly.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Create a simple class that reads a String from a properties file.
      - ResourceBundle.getBundle("test");

      Package the Java class and the properties file together in a Jar, and add an entry in the Manifest for the Main-Class.

      - Place the jar in a directory with an exclamation mark in the name
      (i.e. !a).
      - Execute "java -jar <jar name>" from the command line.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      There should be no exception, and the application should run normally.
      ACTUAL -
      The application terminates with an exception.
