Subject Re: JavaC and sourcepath

Sorry, I still don't understand why you are doing this this 
fashion...  Clearly you can extrapolate based on the class files 
generated compared to the source path's defined...

But, why is it important to have just these Java files?  Meaning what is 
the purpose and why?  I just don't understand.

As has been mentioned, this is a function of Javac.
