Is there any problem with installing both 32 bit sun (oracle) java and 64 bit sun java on the same machine with the different default installation directories?
I have a new 64 bit notebook and I have a groovy program that used to work on the 32 bit windows 7 and it does not work now on windows 8 64 bit with 64 bit java. I'd like to install 32 bit java on the same machine and see if that fixes the problem but I don't want to muck up the existing 64 bit java.
"Hello World" from groovy seems to work fine so this is a mystery.
