Hi..
  I want to put a generated class file in working directory without -d option
for that can i need set any env variables.so that i did not need to put -d option everytime.

[root@x m_classes]# javac  /usr/apache/htdocs/mtool/Test.java

if  i will compile this file it will put my class file in mtool that i dont want to do. i want to put this file directly in to m_classes i know the -d option  but i dont want to use that option evrytime when i am compiling a java file.

plz suggest me with the help of example.


Thanks
Bipin

Putting the class file into the current working directory is the default behaviour of the compiler anyway.

So, IOW why not just change to

usr/apache/htdocs/mtool

?

if you work mostly at the command line, you may want to try learning and using a build tool like apache ant; among other things, it will let you set up the source and build directories for your project.

Hi Friend
  When I Compile like this
    root@x m_classes]# javac  /usr/apache/htdocs/mtool/Test.java
   generated class file goes to  /usr/apache/htdocs/mtool directory
  but when i compile like this
    root@x m_classes]# javac -d    /m_classses
                                   /usr/apache/htdocs/mtool/Test.java
       My generated class file goes to that directory
   can I do this without  -d option by setting some path or environment variable in linux

Why have you asked the same question under two different IDs?

750 points is a lot to spend on something like this.

The first thing I would do is close one of the questions and post a message on CS asking them to consolidate your accounts (or delete one).  It is strictly forbidden on EE to have more than one account.

  You can do it only if you have the source files into the folder which you want the class files to be (in other words .java and .class files are in the same directory) and then not use the -d option.

The easiest way to simplify things for yourself would be to use a shell script:

#!/usr/bin/bash

OUTDIR=/m_classes
javac -d$OUTDIR $*



Save the above as

jc.sh

and then do

./jc  /usr/apache/htdocs/mtool/Test.java

My apologies if this is the case.

I'm sure you'll all agree that the greeting line and first sentence are extremely similar.

i think it should be enough for you

I agree with f_98 - you should learn to use ant or make.  I can save you a great
deal of work (and excess typing) in the the future.
