I'm trying to compile a java program on Linux system form command line.
The program is very simple. It includes only a class, which is in a package.
Practically my project is composed by a directory (HelloWorld) that contains two ones.
One is named "src", the other is called "bin".
In the first one, there is another directory (principale) where there is the java file (Saluto.java)
In this situation if I execute the command "javac -d ./bin/ ./src/principale/Saluto.java from ~/HelloWorld/ it works.
But if I execute "javac -d ./bin/ -sourcepath ./src principale/Saluto.java" or "javac -d ./bin/ -sourcepath ./src/principale Saluto.java" fomr the same point it doesn't.
in the html page https://docs.oracle.com/en/java/javase/14/docs/specs/man/javac.html#options it is explained that:
- Specifies where to find source files. Except when compiling multiple modules together, this is the source code path used to search for class or interface definitions
- So "javac" should search source files in "path" (that are ~/HelloWorld/src/ or ~/HelloWorld/src/principale in case), but it shouldn't.
- Does anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
- Thanks very much
