Errors running jruby 1.4.0rc1 on windows

Hey all,
I used the windows installer to grab jruby 1.4 rc, and I get this error
when
I try to use the jruby command for just about anything.

\jruby-1.4.0RC1\bin) was unexpected at this time

Any ideas?

Looks like there are plenty of issues with 1.4.0RC1 on Windows. See

http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JRUBY-4042
http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JRUBY-4045
http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JRUBY-3159

If you think this is a separate issue, you should open a new ticket.

Hi,

I see a variation of this error message when JRuby 1.4.0rc1 is used on
Windows via the RubyMine IDE, when performing things like the “spec”
command.

I am also finding that I have obviously coded for the specific “non”
Ruby standard methods/returns from JRuby 1.3.1, and since JRuby 1.4 is
more Ruby standards compliant, it is causing many of my tests to
fail. :frowning:

This is a good thing, apart from having to double check with Ruby
1.8.7 to make sure I do not need to raise a bug against JRuby 1.4.
(Most of these differences have come out of YAML, and the rewrite
being more standards compliant as well as faster).

Regards
Matthew W.

Can you provide a few things to help us isolate this:

  1. Windows version?
  2. Did you change any default behavior during the installer (like
    change install location)?
  3. What is the install location?
  4. Did you use installer+jre or just jre?
  5. Which commands work (if any)? If some do then which commands don’t
    work?

This would be in windows 7 rc.

I used the default install path, which it went into C:\Program Files
(x86)\jruby-1.4.0RC1\

I used just the jruby installer, no jre, as I already have that
installed.

Every command I have tried seems to have that problem. Atleast
anything with using the jruby command, as well as jirb. I submitted a
bug for this last night at the jruby codehaus:
http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JRUBY-4051?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=193494#action_193494

Hi folks,

I tested on my Vista x64 box, and the error is the same, so I can
confirm this issue. The main problem is due to spaces in the
installation path.

One possible fix is to change jruby.bat, the line with IF EXIST … to:

IF EXIST “%~dp0_jrubyvars.bat” (set “FULL_PATH=%~dp0”) ELSE (set
“FULL_PATH=%~dp$PATH:0”)

(basically, I’ve added quotes to around FULL_PATH). With such change,
I can run jruby.

Thanks,
–Vladimir

Small clarification.

Actually, the problem this time is due to present brackets – ().
They cause syntax error.

Thanks,
