I would like to use a MS Windows-95 platform to develop Java applications. Does anyone know of a version of Java that will install (without warnings) and run successfully on this platform?
Thanks in advance

What type of applications are you planning to develop? If you need J2EE (Server-side development with EJBs, Servlets, etc), you will need a better OS. Otherwise, I don't know a reason that you couldn't use the 1.4.1 SDK, but I haven't tried it.

I have successfully run using 1.3.1 and even J2EE stuff (Servlets and EJBs) using Win95.
