Hi, I just downloaded J2SE 1.4.2 SDK and installed it to code with. Its all set up fine and working except I keep getting tons of the same warning message every time I run the program. Id really like to get rid of them because it makes debugging a pain when I have to filter through all the warnings to find my println output. Here is the warning I keep getting.

Any one have any idea whats causing this? And more important, how do I get rid of it?
oh yeah, I happen to be using intellij 3.0.4 but I don't see why this would make any difference.

I had the same thing. I'll bet you didn't un-install the old version and you have the path and classpath still set for the old version.

Thanks, I will check into that. This is a brand new windows load, but I did install the 1.4.2 with netbeans first and then uninstalled it.
Thanks for the help.
I agree. Here's the link:
