New submission from Sowmya:

test_subprocess_jy fails with below error:
test test_subprocess_jy failed -- Traceback (most recent call last):
  File \'L:\\apps\\ascii\\jython\\70files\\current\\win\\Lib\\test\\test_subprocess_jy.py\', line 13, in testDefaultEnvIsInherited
    p1 = Popen([sys.executable, \'-c\',

    raise OSError(e.getMessage() or e)
OSError: Argument has embedded quote, use the explicit CMD.EXE call.

Solution : This testcase needs to be changed to suit the changes mentioned in Oracle 7u21 - (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/7u21-relnotes-1932873.html#jruntime). Python  code  needs to be modified to use "Cmd.exe" while running commands that contains quotes in it
