New issue 411 by aneumann...@gmail.com: Empty java_outer_classname = ""
leads to .java file
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Create a .proto file, set option java_outer_classname = ""
2. Compile with protoc
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Protoc should throw an error that "" is not a valid class name. Instead it
generates a ".java" file in the right place, with compile errors because
the everywhere where the class name should be there's nothing.
What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
2.4.1, on Windows
Please provide any additional information below.
It's nothing critical, just nice to fix. I was just playing around looking
for a way to generate multiple classes ( found it, option
java_multiple_files = true; ), and was wondering why Eclipse showed an
error for the project...
