I meant the java program that you wish to run, that wants an older
version of Java. Can you get the source of that program, recompile it
with ant, instead of installing an older version of Java ...which might
gum up everything else running with your newer version of Java. I use a
very java intensive program named Wonderland. They distribute binaries,
for the faint of heart, or the source code, which needs merely to be
compiled. I have to use svn to get the latest trunk, which is no big
deal. I then have the latest and greatest, built against my current
version of Java. Just a thought and a suggestion, Ric
