      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
        From the javac man page, under the heading "Searching For Type":

             For example, when you subclass java.applet.Applet, you are also using
             Applet�s ancestor classes: java.awt.Panel, java.awt.Container,
             java.awt.Component, and java.awt.Object.

      It's java.lang.Object. I hope this isn't a dupe... I looked through the bug DB for about 15 minutes and couldn't find anything.

      URL for documentation:
      http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/tooldocs/windows/javac.html

      JUSTIFICATION :
      Obviously, this enhancement has NO impact on anything, other than making the man page logically correct.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Well, it's java.lang.Object (not java.awt.Object).
