Since I need 1.4 for the Cattle Drive and 1.6 for something else, how can I maintain both on the same computer? (He asks hopefully.)

You could just use 1.6 and compile with javac -source 1.4 -target 1.4

We really want to convert the Cattle Drive to use a more up-to-date version of Java, just haven't quite gotten there yet.

Sounds good, thanks!

I should only screw it up a few hundred times before I get the hang of it.

I'll be certain to take diabolical pleasure in every screw-up.

I used 1.6 for the cattle drive so far, I think most of the syntax is the same (a lot of stuff was introduced in 1.5, but none of the assignments use that stuff I don't think)

You can compile with 1.4 as Katrina said too... there's totally no reason to have both.


When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
