jdbc-tool.jar DB Execution action file path with space character not working


Article ID: 87202


Updated On:


CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


Error Message :

The JDBC-tool.jar DB Execution action does not accept a file path with a space character even if the space is enclosed in double quotes (i.e. file:/C:/automic/sql 2.sql).  It behaves unpredictably when a space is encountered.

When you use a file path with a space character in the DB Execution action it is internally replaced with %20 string and then it is unable to find the actual path in the Windows environment.
