This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
Thanks Shivani, AFter your reply, i went through the installation instructions for jdk1.3.1 for Windows, and found : instead of updating the path variable we can directly compile like C:> \jdk1.3.1_<version number>\bin\javac MyClass.java and I tried jdk 1.4 here. And it worked..that means i have to correct my PATH,CLASSPATH variables.
1.4 seems to work fine with j2ee. As HF EJB has mentioned at the start, that 1.4 would not give any problems as such..But ofcourse in the future if i may get some problems i shall switch to 1.3
