This works fine for me with a recent tip.

Could you check again whether you are a non-empty cell array?

My system is a Linux system with java version 1.7.0_21 (OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.9) (7u21-2.3.9-0ubuntu0.12.04.1)) in case it matters.

Using stable Octave and the Java package I get:

... while with the dev version I get:

Obviously it would be hard to check what ML does (as its javaclasspath is preloaded with order of 200 entries after startup).

Is there a reason that an empty javaclasspath now returns a non-empty cellstr array? (= with one empty cell)

I'd rather prefer the old behavior, i.e., returning a completely empty cellstr array.

I'll submit another (minor) bug with javaclasspath in an other bug tracker entry. I doubt if they are related, but you never know...
