What does JVM has to do with this? The compiler will throw error in case of any ambiguity. Personally I prefer to import individual classes. But if I need to import more than 4 classes from the same package, I use the wildcard approach (import *).

In a small application it doesn't matter if you use wildcard import. In first place why do you want Compiler to resolve this ambiguous references and report back to you through an error message.
Isn't it good if we can avoid this extra step the JVM (compiler) has to take ?
