Hi, i could use some help on assertions

K&B book says that


will enable assertions for all classes in mysubpackage and all classes in every subpackage bellow that.

J2SE5 DOC says that:


(note the 3 dots ... after mysubpackage). is the correct syntax for enabling assertions in mysubpackage classes and all classes bellow it.

Which one is the correct option? Both works for me...

Thank you very much.

[B]K&B book says that

will enable assertions for all classes in mysubpackage and all classes in every subpackage bellow that. [/B]

Are you referring to command-line examples listed in table 4-4 on page 263 of K&B book? On my book, it does include the 3 dots.


Have you checked out the book's errata?
