Hello,

I'm a little bit confused of which version to use. Assignment says I "must use exclusively the Java 2 platform"

A webpage of sun tells me the following:

The current release is Java Platform, Standard Edition 6 (Java SE 6). The previous release was Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5.0 (J2SE 5.0).

Sun Microsystems simplified the platform name in 2006 to better reflect the level of maturity, stability, scalability, and security built into the Java platform. Sun dropped the "2" from the name and deleted the "dot number" (the number following the period). Any updates to Java platforms will simply be noted as updates rather than adding a "dot number" at the end of the platform name.


Am I allowed to use latest Java 6 Platform which is according to the definition above no longer a Java 2 Platform, but just a Java Platform??

Thanks for your help

Howdy.

It was just a name change. You can surely use the latest version.
