I am new to java so please forgive what maybe a stupid question:
I downloaded the 5.0 version of java and everything went well. I was then told that the IBM rational tool that we use in a new dept that I just moved into stated that that version is not supported. Therefore I uninstalled it and installed the 1.4.2_08 (last version on sun.com). Now when I am trying to go through a NON-IBM RATIONAL tutorial I am getting the following error that, after googling on the error message, states that I am having a conflict with the 5.0 JRE but I no longer have 5.0 installed. I now just installed both the 1.4.2_08 versions of the JRE and JDK from my system but to no avail. Here is what i have in my PATH under the SYSTEM VARIABLES section:
C:\Program Files\CoreJavaBook\v1ch4\Calendar\ch4_1Calendar.java:16: cannot access corejava.Day bad class file: C:\Program Files\CoreJavaBook\corejava\Day.class class file has wrong version 49.0, should be 48.0 Please remove or make sure it appears in the correct subdirectory of the classpath. Day today = new Day(); // today's date ^ 1 error
