Description W. Michael Petullo 2005-04-13 16:46:51 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050322 Epiphany/1.5.8

Description of problem:
The java command does not seem to build Java's CLASSPATH properly.  If I add statement to the script that prints the contents of CLASSPATH right before gij is executed, I get:

/usr/share/java/libgcj-java version 1.4.2.jar

There are two problems with this:

1.  This path is not correct.

2.  If I execute gij with CLASSPATH not set, gij will search "." by default.  However, if I execute java with CLASSPATH not set, java will build a CLASSPATH that does not include ".".  As a result, java will not search "." by default.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Select a program that uses classes in ".".

2.  Execute the program using gij.

3.  Execute the program using java.

Actual Results:  Step 2 succeeds.  Step 3 fails because "." is not searched for classes.

Expected Results:  Steps 2 and 3 should succeed.
