When specifying the script parameters, follow these rules:

  • Script parameters containing spaces should be delimited with double quotes, for example, some" "param or "some param".
  • If script parameter includes double quotes, escape the double quotes with backslashes, for example:
    -s"main.snap_source_dirs=[\"pcomponents/src/main/python\"]" -s"http.cc_port=8189" -s"backdoor.port=9189" -s"main.metadata={\"location\": \"B\", \"language\": \"python\", \"platform\": \"unix\"}"
