      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :


      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      've notice a strange java 7 behavior on windows when a "*" is used as argument:

      Here is the test case, just printed out the args (pretty simple as you can see):

          public class TestStar
          {
            public static void main(String args[])
            {
              for (String _arg : args)
              {
                System.out.print(_arg + " ");
              }
              System.out.println();
            }
          }

      On Unix, running ' java TestStar "*" ', both on jdk6 and jdk7 produce the expected output:

          $ echo $JAVA_HOME

          $ ./jdk1.6.0_26/bin/java -version
          java version "1.6.0_26"
          Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)
          Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 20.1-b02, mixed mode)
          $ ./jdk1.6.0_26/bin/java TestStar "*"
          *
          $ ./jdk1.7.0/bin/java -version
          java version "1.7.0"
          Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b147)
          Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 21.0-b17, mixed mode)
          $ ./jdk1.7.0/bin/java TestStar "*"
          *
          $

      On windows with jkd6, I've got the expected output:

          $ echo %JAVA_HOME%
          %JAVA_HOME%

          $ c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_29\bin\java.exe -version
          'c:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
          operable program or batch file.

          $ "c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_29\bin\java.exe" -version
          java version "1.6.0_29"
          Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_29-b11)
          Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 20.4-b02, mixed mode, sharing)

          $ "c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_29\bin\java.exe" TestStar "*"
          *

          $


      On windows with jkd7, the output **IS NOT** the expected one. It seems that the "*" is interpreted and list the directory

          $ "c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_03\bin\java.exe" -version
          java version "1.7.0_03"
          Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_03-b05)
          Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 22.1-b02, mixed mode, sharing)

          $ "c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_03\bin\java.exe" TestStar "*"
          TestStar.class

          $ "c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_03\bin\java.exe" TestStar "\*"
