suppose i developed an applet using the latest version of jdk, and when i try to access it from someother machine on ie5, will it execute?
when the applet get downloaded on the client's machine will it update the jvm also? do we have different versions of jvm for different versions of jdk?

thanx

If you compile with the defaul settings, then the browser will require a Java 2 v1.3 plug-in or newer.

No.

Yes.
You can specify a tag that will cause the user's browser to be forwarded to Sun's plug-in download/installation page. Take a look at Exploring Java 2 Browser Support for further details and an example applet tag.

If you want to provide an applet that will run in a "stock" Microsoft Virtual Machine (version 1.1.4), you will have to use a version 1.1.x compiler (and stay away from 1.2 code ).
I have made this work with a version 1.1.8 JDK, which is still available from Sun, but it is kind of a pain.

Or, if you are using jdk1.4, you can compile with the -target option.
