We are using JDK1.3 currently and are migrating to JDK1.4. now.I would like to know the exact difference in the getMessage() method between the two versions.It would be helpful if someone can let me know what the return
type string contains in both versions.

Thanks in advance

The getMessage() method of what class? Throwable? As far as I know it hasn't changed. Of course there are many, many, many classes which extend Throwable, so it's possible one of them has overridden the method to do something different. Is there some particular class you're interested in, or some example which makes you think the behavior might have changed?
