    Default probleme with assert statement

    Hi everybody

    I just want to test "assert" statement with a programm like this:
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    System.out.println("start");
    assert 1 + 1 == 5;
    System.out.println("end");
    }
    and the result is:
    start
    end

    Why?
    I'm using eclipse 3.5.
    Is existing a mean to disable assertions in eclipe?

    Thanks a lot. Pierre

    hi welcome to forum
    Next time please put your code in code tags :)

    Java Code:
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    System.out.println("start");
    assert 1 + 1 == 5; 
    System.out.println("end");
    }
    the program prints that because you put start and end in printf statements i dont get your question

    Assertions are disabled by default (see Java assertions for details).

    In Eclipse, you can enable assertions by using the "-ea" flag. Go to the run arguments and add "-ea" (no quotes) to the VM Arguments. You can do this on a global scope (all projects), for a single project, or even for a single run configuration.
