IBM Integration Designer - java.io.IOException: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

I saw this exception: -

 earlier whilst trying to create an IBM BPM Deployment Environment as a local Unit Test Environment for IBM Integration Designer 8.5.5 on Windows 7.

Under the covers, I'm using WebSphere Application Server 8.5.5.4, BPM Advanced 8.5.50 and Business Monitor 8.5.5.0.

This was the command that I ran: -

"C:\IBM\WebSphere\AppServerbin\BPMConfig.bat" -create -de c:\Advanced-PS-Standalone-DB2.properties

After much trial and much error, I realised the error of my ways.

In the properties file - Advanced-PS-Standalone-DB2.properties - which I sourced from: -

c:\temp\IID\Install\launchpad\content'samples\config\iid

( I'd previously unpacked the IID media into c:\temp\IID\install )

I had: -

bpm.de.node.1.installPath="C:\\IBM\WebSphere\\AppServer"

rather than: -

bpm.de.node.1.installPath=C:\\IBM\WebSphere\\AppServer

In other words, the quotation symbols ( "" ) were getting in the way :-(

I'd rightly used the double-backslash ( \\ ) as required, BUT the quotations were NOT required.

Easy peasy.....
