"Or are you saying that IBM would have to do something in the OS?" IBM is
not making any provisions.
With RPG/Java invocations, essentially you need to build the classpath
yourself. In other words, don't use wild cards.

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?

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

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

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