Hi

Ive been using Sun Application Server to develop webservice for Ldap Operations. I used JDK1.4 to compile my java files. Im trying to run this on Tomcat5.5. I need Compatability Package for tomcat to use my class files which were compiled in JDK1.4.

Did anyone use Compatability Package for Tomcat5.5?

Thanks,
Su Yeu

You only need the compatibility package if you are trying to run Tomcat 5.5x with a Java 1.4 or lower. If you are running it with Java 1.5, you should be able to handle classes compiled with javac 1.4.

I am trying to run Tomcat5.5.13 with Java1.4. I used compatability package for Tomcat5.5.15(since I couldnt find compatability pack for 5.5.13), but it didnt work out.

Ben any other solution?

Cheers,

Did you find any solution to this?

I am using tomcat5.5 and its manager page shows VM as 1.5x. The jre I have is 1.5 and still my WARs are running only when I add the patch.

I heard it is needed only if one uses jre1.4. But this is not the behaviour I am experiencing.

Am I missing anything here?

Please help.

Regards,
Tina

I run 5.5 without the compat package with no problems.
What problems are you having?

Hi,

You can find the compatability package in:

http://tomcat.apache.org/download-55.cgi

- 5.5.17
|-Binary Distributions
|- JDK 1.4 Compatability package

Arul,
This thread is 6 months old.
I'm sure the people involved have move past this issue by now.
