How can I find out which versions of JDK are compatible with Windows XP?
Specifically, I have some Java code written in a Notes R5 application. I believe Notes R5 only supports up to JDK 1.1.8. I am getting an occasional error saying that Javaw.exe has encountered an error when I run the app. I am wondering if this error is a result of incompatibility between 1.1.8 and Windows XP on my machine.
Thanks.

So far as I know, with the exception of minor OS-specific bugs, any release from Sun's java for XP should work just fine.
What's the error-message that you're experiencing?

The error is "javaw.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." Then it asks to send a report to Microsoft. When I look to see what the error report contains, it references an AppName of javaw.exe and a ModName of nlsxbe.dll which is a Notes dll. I have noticed references in other forums about a compatibility issue with XP and JDK releases prior to 1.3. I don't kow if this is true or not which is why I am inquiring for a way to find out.
Thanks.

Ah, that does sound serious. You'd probably have better success searching Sun's java forums, since they seem to have more information about all the system-level issues.

I'd also suggest giving google a try.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
