Subject Re: [drlvm] VM throws NullPointerException in case java.class.path is not set
Date Tue, 10 Oct 2006 09:57:10 GMT
Another solution could be a simple shutdown with the valid error message.
Sometimes the error message is better than hidden behaviour.
So the alternative is to check all properties VM needs before running real
startup and fail if some of the properties are not found.
