Thanks! I'll look it.

I mean, the overriding succeeds when I use JET only, i.e., "java -
Dem.properties=jet ...". If I use the default configuration "java ...", at
the beginning, the overriding is successful because the code is compiled by
JET. But later, when the EM invoke OPT to re-compile the hot code, the
overriding does not work any longer. It fall back to the original java code.

So, where do you think is the best place in OPT for the overriding code? And
is there a common path for both JET and OPT?
