I am using Microsoft JVM for the purpose of certain application.There is no way to avoid it.Because ,the application requires MS JVM and it does not work with Sun's version of JVM.This is how I am locked in Windows XP.I have to uninstall Sun JVM to use that application.
Is there any way to avoid the uninstalling of Sun JVM, still able to use that application?

Thanks.
Prashant.

Welcome to the Ranch.

I am surprised that your app only works on a Microsoft JVM; have you mistakenly inserted platform-dependent features into it?

Suggest you try altering your PATH environment variable (details here in the installation instructions) so you have the Microsoft JVM shown before Sun. See whether that works.

It used to be possible to have both the MS and the Sun JVM installed on a single machine, and use both of them. Why do you think it isn't? As Campbell said, you need to set the PATH (and possibly the CLASSPATH) accordingly, of course.
