Hello Computer Folks, I have a java application made on JBuilder 8 using jre 1.4.1 and I would like to deploy it on a machine that only has jre 1.3.1. Is there a way in JBuilder 8 or otherwise that I could make it work.

Hi Diego, I would just copy the classes across to another directory and then from a dos box do: java NameOfTheClassWithTheMainMethod You could also do that inside the directory where you generated your classes.
The nice thing about Standards is that there are so many to choose from!

Install J2SDK 1.3 on your machine, add another compiler definition in JBuilder, and tell JBuilder to rebuild the application using that 1.3 compiler. Or (can't remember if JBuidler supports this, I think it does) set JBuilder to use compiler option "-target 1.3" which should generate 1.3 compatible classfiles. Of course this only works if you used no 1.4 only classes and functions and don't rely on possibly changed behaviour introduced in 1.4.

Hello Jeroen, Thanks for the assistence, however it does seem that my application uses a lot of 1.4 classes....Do you know of anyway this would work short of using 1.4.1???
