Doing java -ea Test will cause assertion enabled in default package or all the packages.

Please guide.

You could test this:

Create a small class (YourClass), in a package (yourpackage), that has an "assert false;" in it's main() method.
Compile the class.

Then run java -cp . -ea yourpackage/YourClass

If the assert is triggered, this indicates that the -ea switch does not mean "switch assert on for default package".

(the default package is the location for classes that are not in a package, and your test class is in the package yourpackage)
