Hello All,
Has anyone had any experience using JDK 1.4 Beta 3 on Windows XP? If so, can you confirm/deny that there are problems with JDK 1.4 on XP?
What sorts of problems are there, and are they serious enough to avoid installing JDK 1.4, and sticking with JDK 1.3 for now (no real project-related development work is done on this machine).
Regards,
Reuben.

I have been using it on XP for about 2 months now with no real known issues to me. I did have a problem on one machine where the System.exit(0) was not killing main() but I have since re-installed the OS on that machine and have not had a problem since. So I think something was just corrupt.

I'm glad to hear your problem was resolved, Gregg. I was wondering about it.
