------- Additional Comments From malachi@eoti.org  2003-02-05 07:38 -------
Pulling a 98 box out of the closet, I checked and found that the "user.home" on 
Win98 is set to "C:\WINDOWS".  I am not sure what JVM you were running, but I 
was running Sun's on 98SE.




However, I disagree that the manual comment is valid. 1st flaw is that the 
version of Windows they referred to has long been End-of-Lifed.  All newer 
versions use the "user.home" on a regular basis.  2nd is that their example 
SHOULD be placed under user.home on newer versions of Windows, as that is where 
ALL applications are expected to put their data. 3rd, "on the JVM that I tested" 
isn't really valid, since many JDKs (by vendors other than Sun or IBM) have not 
been fully implemented.




The correct solution would be to point to ( 
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/essential/system/properties.html ) for 
further information on system properties. The user.home solution is completely 
valid on any current OS.  As is, though, the manual is wrong.
