Hello,
I have two drives C and D.
I've just installed IBM WebSphere Commerce Suite (version 4.1) which uses java version 1.7.1. on my D drive which I will be using for development purposes for my company.
Can I also install the latest java version 1.7.1 on my C drive for general Java Development?
will there be a conflict between the two versions? If so have can i get around any problems?
What will the classpath setting be?
Many Thanks

I have 4 different versions of java loaded on my D drive.
I also keep 4 different .bat files that I use to set the path and classpath to the appropriate version on the fly.
I have never noticed any problem with it.

hi cindy
Thanks for your post.
Where and how in the jdk folders do you assign the different .bat file to the different jdk version?
Look forward to hearing from you
Many thanks
