Description
Name: rmT116609			Date: 06/25/2003


A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
An additional option for javap is required that inform on the file modified date and size information.

JUSTIFICATION :
certain applications provide quick fixes when an error is detected at a later stage. At that time we override the classpath with the new class files. Now there is no way we can find out which class file the system is refering to (new or old). This option will help us in determining weather its new or old.

EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
javap -system java.lang.String

java.lang.String modified on 05/20/2003 size 102kb

EVALUATION

Useful enhancement but too late to consider for adding in 1.5.0 timeframe.
Will give consideration to adding such a feature in subsequent release
