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.
