Default java exec problem with class path

Hello, I'm trying to execute java program from another java application:
Process process = Runtime.getRuntime().exec(commandLine);
When the commands looks like:
java -cp my_class_path org.jetel.main.runGraph parameters
everything works properly, but when the my_class_path is quoted:
java -cp "my_class_path" org.jetel.main.runGraph parameters
I get error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/jetel/main/runGraph
More over the last command:
java -cp "my_class_path" org.jetel.main.runGraph parameters
is executed properly when running from command line.
I have SUSE OS and java 1.6, but the application, that calls the exec method runs with java 1.5
Did anyone fence the above problem? What could help?

Try escaping the double quotes, use '\"'

It is of course escaped. It helped executing exec(String[]) instead of exec(String)
