Spaces in for external executable are not accepted

      Description

      When the path to the external executable in <executable> contains space(s), the build will fail: the command is misunderstood because it stops at the first space encountered.

      Example:
      <executable>C:\Program Files\java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin\javac.exe</executable>
      The plugin will try to execute "C:\Program" instead.

      On windows the only workaround I know of is:
      <executable>C:\PROGRA~1\java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin\javac.exe</executable>
