I have a question in SCJP text book by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates in Development chapter.
Q. Given the default classpath: /foo
And the directory structure:
foo | test | xcom |--A.class |--B.java
And these two files as mentioned in the code snippet section.
Amongst the choice,
1. javac -classpath . xcom/B.java
2.javac -classpath xcom:. B.java
Correct answer is option 1. But my doubt is that isn't option 2 going to perform same operation? If not, what is the difference between the two syntax?
