Does the version of the J2EE standard being used force one to use a particular version of the JDK or a particular JVM. Given that code compiled with different version of the JDK require a particular JVM version, does J2EE in any way enter into this scenario?
The current J2EE (1.3, released 24 Sept 2001) states that it requires 1.3.1_01 of the J2SE in order to function correctly. The reason for 1.3 would be functionality; the _01 would be probably some little bug fix that J2EE needs. I got this information from Sun's site, at http://java.sun.com/j2ee/sdk_1.3/index.html ------------------ Ian Darwin, Author of Java Cookbook: Solutions and Examples for Java Developers (edited by Cindy to get rid of period after URL) [This message has been edited by Cindy Glass (edited October 05, 2001).]
