In the documentation concerning javac on the JDK1.1.4 distribution
for Tool docs ...
It is said that it is allowed to do like:
However it does not work and it is not written in the top of the
documentation (just list of *.java files).
Compiling One or More Packages
To compile a package, the source files (*.java) for that package must be located in
a directory having the same name as the package. If a package name is made up of
several identifiers (separated by dots), each identifier represents a different directory.
Thus, all java.awt classes must reside in a directory named java\awt\.
First, change to the parent directory of the top-most package. Then run javac,
supplying one or more package names.
% cd c:\jdk\src
% javac java.awt java.awt.event
Compiles the public classes in packages java.awt and java.awt.event.
