Hello,
Is it required to test the code on different Operating Systems.

It is advisable as you don't know on which OS they are going to run it. Personally, I developed my code on Win98 and got a nasty surprise when I tried it on WinNT - seemed like a Swing bug more than anything else, but I had to work around it nevertheless.

i have windows professional 2000.
but as the case was with you it can be that the code might not work on an OS that they are using. which might be , by most probability be NT or Linux/solaris/unix.
so what has to be done for that.
can anyone enlighten me on this

I can't say what is "required" as I don't think Sun ever directly addresses this point.
I developed my app on Windows 2000 and stated in my doc. that I did not have access to a UNIX box and didn't test on UNIX. I coded my app. to avoid specifying file paths. I also never stated the encoding to be used when changing the deprecated methods. I hoped this would avoid cross-platform issues.
As it turns out, at the last moment I DID get access to a UNIX (Solaris on Intel) box and everything worked. The GUI didn't look as nice, but it was readable and worked fine.
