I'm writing applets. I'm compiling them with j2sdk1.4.2_04.
I ran htmlconverter on the html file that holds the applet.
It set the required java version numbers to 1.4.2_04.
I'm testing it on another machine that has the j2re1.4.2_05 plugin.
When I try to test it I get the message that I need the 1.4.2_04
plugin. But I already have the next version (1.4.2_05.) Aren't plugins
downward compatable? I cant expect my users to install different versions
of the plugins just for my site.
Thanks,
Apchar.

That's because you are using stativ versioning - what you want to use is dynamic versioning. See http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/plugin/developer_guide/using_tags.html
