Hi there,

I've ran into a bad problem while doing final testing of my app, which is develped and works fine using java 1.3. But while testing it using java 1.4.0, the main window, displaying search function (panel) and a JTable for search results, is not displayed at all but a gray area. ?
Thanks much!

Well you developed it on 1.3 then the assessor will test your submission using 1.3

That's good news. Thanks, Mark!
Just curious, what in JDK1.4.0 makes fine UI using jdk1.3 unacceptable?

Junk 1.4.0 and use 1.4.1_02 instead.

That's bad news since I tested it at a computer lab in a major university. The thought that they are using a bad version of Java would be really depressing to the students there. Any doc that I can read on why 1.4.0 is junk? Thanks.

All the 1.4.0_xx releases have been withdrawn from support by Sun. You can read about it on the http://java.sun.com website.
In particular here.
