I was given a tool to run that I need for my work, and I simply don't know how to fix these errors!
(I can post the tool if anyone wants to see it, its freely accessible by the author)
Now my problem is that it throws this exception
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/chatley/magicbeans/PluginManager (Unsupported major.minor version 49.0)
The files are already compiled! and as far as I'm aware from the author is that it works fine! I was told to run it using an old version of java, and that's what I'm doing... running it on j2re1.4.1_07
The files supposed to be compiled by the same Java version that I'm using to run it.
Question: how do I check the compiler version that was used to compile the classes?
I understand the problem as follows: I'm attempting to run the tool using an old version of JDK when the files have been compiled by a new compiler version. But this shouldn't apply because the author was running his files without a problem!
This is the command line I'm using (given to me by the author in the same file)...
C:\j2re1.4.1_07\bin\java -cp .;lib\framework.jar;lib\custom.jar;lib\xml.jar;lib\scenebeans.jar;lib\jel.jar;lib\jdom.jar;lib\LTL2Buchi.jar;lib\jcommon-0.6.1.jar;lib\jfreechart-0.8.1.jar com.chatley.magicbeans.PluginManager lib\framework.jar lib\ltsa.jar ic.doc.ltsa.HPWindow
The file that is causing the problem is in "lib\framework.jar"...
What would you advise me to do? Recompile the package again on the same compiler version as 1.4.1?
