      Description



      Name: rmT116609 Date: 09/10/2004


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.5.0-rc"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0-rc-b63)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0-rc-b63, mixed mode, sharing)


      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Linux kabloom.dnsalias.com 2.6.7-2ken #2 Thu Jun 17 17:39:20 PDT 2004 i686 GNU/Linux


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The manpage for javac incorrectly documents the -target option

             -target version
                    Generates class files that will work on VMs with the specified
                    version. The default is to generate class files to be compati-
                    ble with 1.2 VMs, with one exception. When the -source 1.4
                    option is used, the default target is 1.4. The versions sup-
                    ported by javac are:

      (The manpage goes on to list the options available for "version")

      I have observed, however, that the default -source option is 1.5, and the default -target option is also 1.5


      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
