You are seeing this because you are executing /usr/bin/javac instead of
the javac in your current directory.

The easiest way to get around this is by using ./javac (instead of
javac).  This will execute the javac in your current working directory.
For example:

 $ cd /usr/java/jdk1.5.0/bin
 $ ./javac

This has the disadvantage of working only in that directory.  If you are
in another directory and want to call javac, then you can give the
absolute path.  For example:

 $ /usr/java/jdk1.5.0/bin/javac

You may want to consider adding /usr/java/jdk1.5.0/bin (or whatever the
location of your java executables) to you PATH, so that javac can be
found no matter what directory you're in, and you don't have to give a
the absolute path to it every time.
