      Description

      Name: gm110360 Date: 07/15/2002


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.1-beta-b14)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.1-beta-b14, mixed mode)

      FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION :

      This applicable to absolutely every platform


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      It would be an invaluable thing if you add -JARPATH
      parameter to java command line and as an env variable. The
      CLASSPATH tends to have dozens of JAR files. -JARPATH can
      point to directories, java executable should scan and
      append every JAR file found there to the CLASSPATH. If
      anyone is concerned with order or exact list they can
      continue using CLASSPATH. THose who don't want to have 4000
      character long CLASSPATH can choose to copy all JARs into a
      directory (or several) and specify them in JARPATH.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version hopper-beta

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
