Workspace: extraneous output when running Java commands

Whenever I run Java or Javac in the workspace, it throws this into the command line first:

Picked up JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m
Picked up _JAVA_OPTIONS: -Xmx128m

Which doesn't show up in the videos, so I assume it shouldn't be there. Is there something I can do to make it be quiet?

Hi Dan,

Don't worry about that, it's just the setup stuff for the Java compiler. Ignore it; it's fine.

Are you expecting additional output?


The output i expect comes after it, no issues, just wondering if I was supposed to be seeing it. Thank you.

Yep - it's fine. That's just the output from the compiler configuration. :smile: :dizzy:
