Hi,

My clients got some Java web applications and standalone programs running on their Windows XP now. The version of JDK is 1.4.2 and of Tomcat is 5. Now they want to upgrade their OS to Windows Vista.

Did anybody ever try to run JDK1.4.2 and Tomcat 5 on Windows Visita? Could they work properly? Or was there any definite problem?

Thank in advance.

Hi,

Just for your info, I happened to got a new PC with Windows Vista preinstalled. I tried it myself and I confirm JDK 1.4.2 and Tomcat 5 can work on Windows Vista, and so far no problem found yet.

Thank you.

Keep in mind there are two released versions of Tomcat 5.
There is Tomcat 5.0.x and Tomcat 5.5.x.

5.0 can run on top of Java 1.4.
5.5 requires Java 1.5 or 1.4 with a compatibility library.
