Hello,

Can I use different version of JDK on web server and client machines?
For example:
Web Server - jdk1.4
Client machines - jdk 6

Will this work?

First of all: Please read the private message that moderator Ben Souther has sent you.

It depends on what your program does exactly, but it shouldn't normally be a problem.

Well, for a standard web application, the client won't need Java installed at all, of course. In general, it totally depends on how client and server communicate.
