Friends,

My specification says that I "may develop your code using any 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".

The version of my installed Java is:

java version "1.6.0_03"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_03-b05, mixed mode, sharing)

How do I know if it is a development or a production version? Does the "b05" have anything to do with "Beta"?

Thanks,

Paulo Crestani

No, that "b" is for "build". If it's beta it'll say so explicitly. That version is fine.

As far as I know java version "1.6.0_03" is a production version of Sun JVM. The letter b there stands for build. But I'm not sure about which version that SCJD requires.

Any version of java 1.5 or 1.6 is still perfectly acceptable for the assignment. Java 1.5 will remain valid for about another year as 1.6 has only been out for approximately 6 months or so. As 1.7 has not been released yeat it is safe to say that any version of 1.6 will be safe to use for at least the next two or three years.
