Description

Name: bsC130419			Date: 08/14/2001


java version "1.4.0-beta"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-beta-b65)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-beta-b65, mixed mode)

Note that this is not a duplicate of 4489318 (Review ID: 129527).
That was a bug report against JDK1.3.1 and that bug is solved in 1.4beta,
this is a new one against 1.4beta with another test-case which exposes a very
similar bug.

When you have a class B which has a static inner class C and you have
another "normal" class C, this second class C can sometimes not be
found.

  To reproduce the problem:

mkdir bug
cd bug
mkdir src
mkdir src/x
mkdir src/y
mkdir classes

-------------------
-- src/x/B.java:
package x;

import x.*;

public class B {
    public static class C {}
}
-------------------
-- src/x/C.java:
package x;

import x.*;

public class C {}

-------------------
-- src/y/Main.java:
package y;

class Main {
        private R1 a;
        private R2 b;
        private R3 c;
}
-------------------
-- src/y/R1.java:
package y;

public final class R1 {
    x.B.C a = null;
    x.C b = null;
    R2 c = new R2();
}

---------------------
-- src/y/R2.java:
package y;

public final class R2 {
    x.B.C a = null;
    x.C b = null;
}

----------------------
-- src/y/R3.java
package y;

public final class R3 {
    x.B.C a = null;
    x.C b = null;
    R1 c = new R1();
}
-----------------------


Run the following, you will need to change the path to the compiler:
---------------------------------

#! /bin/sh -x

javac_cmd="/u/qmwanhj/j2sdk1.4.0/bin/javac -sourcepath .. -classpath
../../classes -d ../../classes -verbose"

rm -rf classes/*
(cd src/x; $javac_cmd B.java C.java)
echo
echo
(cd src/y; $javac_cmd Main.java)
echo
echo
sleep 1
# Here we modify the timestamp on R3.java to force a recompilation of
touch src/y/R3.java
sleep 1
echo
echo
# This compile fails.
(cd src/y; $javac_cmd Main.java)

---------------------------------------


You should get the following output:
javac_cmd=/u/qmwanhj/j2sdk1.4.0/bin/javac -sourcepath .. -classpath
../../classes -d ../../classes -verbose
+ rm -rf classes/x classes/y
+ cd src/x

EVALUATION Looks like a bug. Here's the script I used to reproduce it: 1 #! /bin/sh 2 3 set -x 4 5 javac_cmd="newjavac -sourcepath src -classpath classes -d classes -verbose -prompt" 6 7 rm -rf classes/* 8 $javac_cmd `find src -name \*.java -print` 9 sleep 1 10 11 # Here we modify the timestamp on R3.java to force a recompilation of 12 touch src/y/R3.java 13 14 # This compile fails. 15 $javac_cmd src/y/Main.java ###@###.### 2001-08-16 ============================================== Another (perhaps simpler) test case from 4509039: In the case when a top-level class and a static nested class, declared in another class from the same packade, have the same name, Java compiler jdk1.4.0beta3-b81 rejects or permits using of the top-level class depending on the order of references to these same named classes. To reproduce the bug compile 3 sources below: > javac -d . Actions.java CallableSystemAction.java ToolbarButton.java After that the compilation of bad.java in which the reference to class using static nested class precedes the reference to top-level class reports an error. > javac -d . bad.java bad.java:7: cannot resolve symbol symbol : class ToolbarButton location: package awt core.awt.ToolbarButton b; ^ 1 error > Another source file in which the reference to the top-level class precedes the reference to the class using static nested class is compiled successfully. > javac -d . good.java > > java -version java version "1.4.0-beta3" Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-beta3-b81) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-beta3-b81, mixed mode) -----------------ToolbarButton.java------------------ package core.awt; public class ToolbarButton { } ---------------------------------------------------- -----------------Actions.java------------------ package core.awt; public class Actions { public static class ToolbarButton { } } ---------------------------------------------------- -----------------CallableSystemAction.java------------------ package core.util.actions; import core.awt.*; public class CallableSystemAction { Actions.ToolbarButton tb; } ---------------------------------------------------- -----------------bad.java------------------ package t; public class bad extends core.util.actions.CallableSystemAction { } class bad1 { core.awt.ToolbarButton b; } ---------------------------------------------------- -----------------good.java------------------ package t; class good1 { core.awt.ToolbarButton b; } public class good extends core.util.actions.CallableSystemAction { } ---------------------------------------------------- ======================================================================
