      Hi,

       

      I had a java file with compilation errors as shown in eclipse IDE.

      But the class file is still generated in the classes folder on building and pressing clean the project.

      I confirmed that the class file has an updated time stamp and also that a System.out.println() statement that i added was indeed printed out when this class was encountered during the running of a web application in which this class was called somewhere.

      (The java class has no subclasses and it is a single class with public modifier).

       

      How does it happen so?

       

      Regards,

       

       

      Karthik.
