Hi all; I'm sure this is simple! I just installed java 1.5.0 beta 2 and want to verify that my IDE is using the newest java runtime. The install directory was: C:\utilities\j2sdk1.5.0_beta2 so I added the following line to my user and system PATH variable: C:\utilities\j2sdk1.5.0_beta2\bin
Is that all I need to do? I'm using netbeans 3.6. I just need to make sure I'm using 1.5.0 because of a library that I found uses the 1.5.0 JDK.
Thank you very much.

Aside from starting 'java' with the '-version' parameter, you could use System.getProperties() to work it out, or just try and run some 1.5-style code. Ie, this will only compile with 1.5:
