> Hi All,
> Currently DRLVM starts with help of the launcher. The launcher does a
> lot of stuff required to create VM instatnce. As a part of its job it
> sets up java.class.path property. And this is good. What is not good
> that DRLVM crashes (actually throws NullPointerException in
> initalization stage) if java.class.path is not set. I believe it makes
> sense to point java.class.path to current directory inside VM if
> launcher doesn't set it.
>  Oliver Deakin  <oliver.deakin@googlemail.com> to harmony-dev 
> I have just tried launching the RI with a simple launcher (very basic -
> CreateJavaVM(),
> finds and launches a class, then calls DestroyJavaVM()). The launcher
> does not
> set java.class.path, and executes the main method of the following class:
>   public class SysInfo {
>       public static void main(String[] args) {
>                   System.getProperties().list(System.out);
>       }
>   }
> The java.class.path value is printed as:
>  java.class.path=
> So it appears that java.class.path property is left empty by default.
> However,
> to have found the SysInfo class, the RI must have searched in the current
> directory. I can also instantiate other classes that are located in the
> current
> directory. So although the java.class.path is set to an empty string,
> internally
> there is a default inclusion of the current directory.
> IMHO we follow the RI behaviour here, and have an implicit inclusion of
> the current directory unless the classpath is explicitly set.
> Regards,
> Oliver
