Bat script replacing a string

Hi,

I got the script below. I am trying to replace a line with a new one.

If I do like this it works:
C:\hudson\jobs\Galop_Release_130_-_Build\workspace\trunk\galopBuildUtilsV2\scripts\BatchSubstitute.bat "/JarRepositor
y/hibernate/hibernate-3.3.2.GA.jar" "/JarRepository/hibernate/hibernate-3.3.2-weaved-by-jnet-log-2.2.2.jar" C:\hudson\jobs\Galop_Release_130_-_Build\workspace\trunk\Foundation\a.classpath

If I do like this it dont work. how can I write the second string to make it work? I need to have it as I trying to do.

I understand that it is this last part sourcepath="/JarRepository/hibernate/hiber
nate-3.3.2.GA-src.zip"  that it think it is a file. But how can I write the string to make dos understand it is a string?

C:\hudson\jobs\Galop_Release_130_-_Build\workspace\trunk\galopBuildUtilsV2\scripts\BatchSubstitute.bat "/JarRepositor
y/hibernate/hibernate-3.3.2.GA.jar" "/JarRepository/hibernate/hibernate-3.3.2-weaved-by-jnet-log-2.2.2.jar" sourcepath="/JarRepository/hibernate/hiber
nate-3.3.2.GA-src.zip" C:\hudson\jobs\Galop_Release_130_-_Build\workspace\trunk\Foundation\a.classpath

Even if it's possible to do it in a batch file, i suggest you don't. Use an Ant replace task or write another Java app to do it

I can't say exactly as i don't understand the batch file - at that level it becomes a 'write-only' language ;)

If you want to script Windows, Powershell is much better

but that is what the string includes. It is the same error as when I used bat. I need this line into the file

/JarRepository/hibernate/hibernate-3.3.2-weaved-by-jnet-log-2.2.2.jar" sourcepath="/JarRepository/hibernate/hibernate-3.3.2.GA-src.zip
