      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I have two source files: Bug.java and BugAnnotation.java. The latter one is located in a jar (by it self) in the classpath and is referenced from Bug.java. When I try to compile Bug.java the following error occurs:

      C:\jcTest\64_jdk1.7.0_07\bin>javac -cp BugAnnotation.jar Bug.java
        Bug.java:18: error: cannot find symbol
          @BugAnnotation
           ^
        symbol: class BugAnnotation
        location: class Bug
      1 error



      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Try to compile the given source file with the command javac -cp BugAnnotation.jar Bug.java

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The compilation is successful
      ACTUAL -

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

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Change the order of the imports in Bug.java. However, this is not an option when using Eclipse to automatically sort imports.
