Subject RE: java and asterisk (*)

Chris,

NT and Solaris handle wildcards differently. Under NT, it is the command's
responsibility to expand wildcards whilst under the Unix shell, wildcard
expansion is performed by the shell. Try writing a simple script to echo the
first parameter and you will see where the wildcard expansion is being
performed. Different philosophies.

Under Ant, the shell is not involved and so, no wildcard expansion in Unix.
