Bug Fixes

Notable Bug Fixes in JDK 7u10

The following are some of the notable bug fixes included in JDK 7u10.

  • Area: java command
  • Description: Wildcard expansion for single entry classpath does not work on Windows platforms.
  • The Java command and Setting the classpath documents describe how the wildcard character (*) can be used in a classpath element to expand into a list of the .jar files in the associated directory, separated by the classpath separator (;).
  • This wildcard expansion does not work in a Windows command shell for a single element classpath due to the Microsoft bug described in Wildcard Handling is Broken.
  • For a list of other bug fixes included in this release, see JDK 7u10 Bug Fixes page.
