That's true. jdk is a Windows native application, it wasn't compiled with
cygwin. Therefore, it doesn't understand the '/' used by UNIX (cygwin); you
must use the M$ '\'. Also, drives must be referenced by their "names" (e.g.
"D:" in your case, and not "//d"). Other: the CLASSPATH environment variable
must use M$-path-style also, because it is meant to be interpreted by jdk
