When using the deployment scanner mbean to pass in a new URL that the JBossAS should scan for deployments, a path format which worked fine in JBoss 5 and below no longer works. Specifically, passing in a URL such as the one below:
When passing this string into the addURL mbean, the following error in the jboss console results:
14:52:54,927 INFO [org.jboss.web.tomcat.service.deployers.TomcatDeployment] deploy, ctxPath=/Dyn888
14:52:54,930 ERROR [org.jboss.kernel.plugins.dependency.AbstractKernelController] Error installing to Start: name=jboss.web.deployment:war=/Dyn888 state=Create mode=Manual requiredState=Installed: java.net.URISyntaxException: Illegal character in path at index 56: file:/home/rob/apps/eclipse/workspaces/main_code/runtime space workspace/.metadata/.plugins/org.jboss.ide.eclipse.as.core/JBoss_6.0_Runtime_Server1292215199516/deploy/Dyn888.war/

Despite that I pass in a string with clear %20 blocking out the spaces, the deployment scanner does not seem to recognize this and errors. This format of a string has no problem working in AS 5.1 however.
This is blocking JBossTools server integration.
