Description
FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
java version "1.7.0_03"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_03-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 22.1-b02, mixed mode, sharing)

ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :

A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
Wildcard expansion doesn't work correctly for -classpath (-cp) parameter when only one entry is specified.


REGRESSION.  Last worked in version 6u29

STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
Script (batch file) for running the test:

mkdir lib
javac test/*.java
jar cvf lib/a.jar test/A.class
jar cvf lib/b.jar test/B.class
java -cp "lib/*" test.B


EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
EXPECTED -
Following message should be on the output:

main() in class B executed

ACTUAL -
Following message appears on the output:

Error: Could not find or load main class lib.b.jar

REPRODUCIBILITY :
This bug can be reproduced always.

---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
File test/A.java:
---
package test;

class A {
}
---

File test/B.java:
---
package test;

class B {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        System.out.println("main() in class B executed");
    }
}
---

---------- END SOURCE ----------

CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
Command line for executing the code must be modified e.g. like following:

java -cp "lib/*;" test.B

Please note that instead of "*" is there "*;". Then execution works as expected.
