It is working fine on java 1.6. The iText site says, It supports java 1.5. My application is supposed to run on a server which uses java 1.5. So, will have to stick on to 1.5.
can anyone help me with a solution?
Thanks in advance..!
I was getting the above error because, even though my system was using java 1.5, since i used java 1.6 to compile my application earlier (i guess..!), a file at the location namely,
src -> Libraries -> Web App Libraries/bcprov-jdk16-145.jar
supports JDK 1.6 and not java 1.5.
You can learn about the file from the site
I replaced it with another file, bcprov-jdk15-143.jar which is for Java 1.5 and the problem is solved..!
Thank you very much Ulf, for the time and concern.
