Java Java Basics Getting Started with Java Introduction to Your Tools

Why did I get "Picked up Java_Tools_Options: -Xmx128m Picked up _Java_Options: -Xmx128m" after javac file pushing enter?

In console at prompt I entered javac Introductions.java, pushed enter key and got "Picked up Java_Tools_Options: -Xmx128m Picked up _Java_Options: -Xmx128m", extra script that the video did not show, why? Is this a windows 10 thing? Ignore it and go on? Did I do something wrong?

Hi there! No, it's not a Windows 10 thing. I'm assuming you're doing this in the workspaces console. Yes, you can safely ignore it and move on. It's not an error. It is an informational message from the JVM about memory options set by Treehouse.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Thank you Jennifer, I'm just getting started in coding and everything is so new.

Yes, thank you Jennifer! I had the same question.

Same here, maybe there should be a note added about it so we don't waste time trying to fix a non existing error. I assumed I had typed something wrong.

Thanks for the swift reply jennifernordell Of course there is a note, not sure how I missed that.
