According to the developer application assignment, "throughout this exercise, you must use exclusively the Java 2 platform. You are not required to develop your code using any particular implementation of the Java 2 platform, but the submission that you return must have been tested and shown to work under a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 Platform. Failure to adhere to these directions will result in automatic failure". I will appreciate it if someone can explain production vs development versions of Java 2...

I think it means not to use a beta version of Java, like 1.4 or even an older Beta version.

Yes, this is exactly what it means. I asked Sun themselves. You cannot use Java 1.4 because it is not considered production yet.
