This is what the specifications say

work under a production (not development) version of the Sun Microsystems' Java 2 platform.

I am testing on the following version

java version "1.3.1_01"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1_01)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1_01, mixed mode)

How do I tell if it is a production or developement version?

You have a production version there. Basically the statement means that if you had downloaded a Beta version of the SDK, that that is a development version, meaning it is not a final release of that version.
1.4.1 is the latest production version, so anything newer than that would be considered Beta of development. Of course at the time of this posting that is probably correct, but when they finalize the newer version then those too will be considered production.

Hi everyone,
I thought there was a requirement that we use a current version of the JDK, or one that has not been EOL for more than 18 months.
Or something along those lines.
I have just looked through my documentation a couple of times and cannot see it - does anyone else know if this is a requirement at present?
And if so, do minor numbers on JDK releases matter? E.g. In Prakash's case, he is using version 1.3.1_01 which is EOL (the current release is 1.3.1_07 Sun's downloads for version 1.3.1 and 1.3.1_01 was replaced by 1.3.1_01a which was replaced by 1.3.1_02, 1.3.1_03, 1.3.1_04, 1.3.1_05, 1.3.1_06 (Sun's JDK archives directory), and according to that page has "completed the Sun EOL process".
Regards, Andrew
