>>> at least half a decade ago sounds longer than about 5 years back doesn't it? 
>>> The test I ran was yesterday and current directory was still searched on the current Apple JVM. 
>>> Despite that you are suggesting against the bug report being necessary as it probably will not be available in openjdk for security issues, correct? 
>>> Then, should there be some sort of documentation available to converting OS X java developers that indicates intentional differences like this?
>> The last time this topic was brought up at Apple was a long time ago. I believe that the policy regarding loading out of the current working directory may have changed on Windows recently, but I could also be mistaken. Obviously, we do not merge platform-specific Windows code into our Mac OS X Java SE 6 and we are also not inclined to make any disruptive changes to Java SE 6 for the Mac, since the product is deprecated, near EOL, and all the focus is on Java 7.
>> Just a file a bug, and let Oracle decide on the policy for Java 7, since they have to weigh the compatibility, security, consistency, and documentation costs across all of their supported platforms.
> OK, will do, probably tomorrow on the macosx-port JIRA(? please correct if wrong place)
