Hi, I have installed jdk1.3 and J2EE 1.3. Now I want to install JDK 1.4. I have removed jdk1.3 from "add/remove software" control in my winXP and install JDK1.4, and change the classpath. But when I "java -version", still is "jdk 1.3".

I guess, I should ALSO remove the J2EE 1.3, Am I right ?

Thanks

Hi Edward,

Do you have "Java 2 Runtime Environment 1.3" on the "add/remove software" control? If so, remove it as well.

Edward, you may end up needing to manually track down and deleting a JRE or J2SDK installation or two, if working through the control panel isn't getting the job done. Inspecting the value of the PATH environment variable might help in locating things.

After you're finished removing things, I'd recommend restarting the computer before installing the version of the J2SDK you want installed.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
