Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-6079) [jdktools] javac should exit with error code non-zero on compile errors
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2009 10:55:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HARMONY-6079?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12670303#action_12670303

Tim Ellison commented on HARMONY-6079:

The javac tool page [1] doesn't define the return codes.  Playing around a bit with the RI
it would appear
return 0 = success
return 1 = compile error / unrecognized option
return 2 = no args given, usage printed

I'll recreate those return codes unless you see any better definition.

> javac currently always exits with error code zero even if there are compile errors. 
Sun javac exits with non-zero error code which is useful when javac is used from scripts and
Makefiles.  I think we should adopt Sun javac behaviour.
