        Description

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
        In the section "How the Java Runtime Finds User Classes", there are several typos that should be corrected to get the details correct:

        1) In the second para, the leading [back]slash should be removed from each of the cited Solaris and Windows paths; it is not stated that the myclasses directory is a subfolder of the root directory, which the full pathnames imply/specify.

        2) In the third para, the names of the two operating systems should be swapped so that the correct [back]slash-ed pathname is associated.

        3) In the first bullet, the name of the folder should be JUST . and not *.* which is in keeping with the rest of the working and the current implementation (as confirmed by the sample demo program I submitted with my earlier bug report today.
