I installed JDK6. And when I write a simple program with assertion it neither works in command prompt nor in Netbeans6.9. I think if it will work in command prompt it will work in JDK. I tried java -ea both in command prompt as well as in Netbeans VM options. Any idea why its not working.

Maybe the assert condition simply isn't violated?
Some relevant code and the exact command-line invocation might help shed some light on things.
