Subject Re: [drlvm] VM throws NullPointerException in case java.class.path is not set
Date Tue, 10 Oct 2006 10:05:22 GMT
It seems for me like pretty specified VM behavior to treat classpath
absence as take classes from current directory. At least RI does like
that when you don't specify classpath on command line.
