      Description



      Name: ouC59006 Date: 06/18/98



      When the compiler is called from some java program, it can't find some classes
      which are actually on the CLASSPATH variable. My understanding is that the compiler
      now (starting from JDK-1.2beta4-H) is being loaded by the same class loader as the
      user aplication. Then, it should find all the classes which are on the user
      CLASSPATH.

      Example a.java below exhibits the problem. Note that if one sets that same
      class path into -Xsysclasspath java option, it runs the program successfully.
      For the first time this behaviour appeared in JDK-1.2beta4-H.

      --> echo $JAVA_HOME
      /export/ld14/java/dest/jdk1.2b4J/solaris

      java full version "JDK-1.2beta4-J"
      --> setenv CLASSPATH ${JAVA_HOME}/lib/tools.jar:.
      --> javac a.java
