Maven command into bat

Posted on


I must run a maven project from command line with this command and works fine:

mvn -Dexec.args="-classpath %classpath com.mycompany.serverrds.serverMainClass" -Dexec.executable="C:Program FilesJavajdk1.8.0_191binjava.exe" -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 org.codehaus.mojo:exec-maven-plugin:1.2.1:exec

I create a .bat file to run the command quickly, but I get an error;

my .bat file is composed as:

cd c:xyz    
"C:Program Filesapache-maven-3.6.0binmvn.cmd" -Dexec.args=-classpath %classpath com.mycompany.serverrds.serverMainClass -Dexec.executable="C:Program FilesJavajdk1.8.0_191binjava.exe"

where “c:devmavproj” is the directory where stay maven project, and the .bat file is named test.bat.

I receive this error: “the syntax of the command is incorrect”.

Well, i create new file .bat and I inserted only

"C:Program Filesapache-maven-3.6.0binmvn.cmd" 

and the mvn command is executed ok.
