When you say "up to the caller", do you mean I have to do something
different in my RPG code? Or are you saying that IBM would have to do
something in the OS?

Thanks

Subject: Re: Wildcards in classpath?

The wildcard expansion is supported by java launcher.
When not using the java launcher, and using the JNI invocation API directly
( which is how RPG invokes the jvm), its up to the caller to provide a full
classpath and expand any wildcards required.

RUNJVA & QSHELL thus uses java launcher, so it supports the wildcard
expansion.

Stackoverflow link shows there is similar issue in oracle jdk. Seems it's
not an IBM specific issue.
