All,

I need to install JRE 1.4.2 and 1.5.0_05 on my Windows XP laptop. My objective is to be able to install JBoss AS 4.0.2 which needs JRE 1.4.2 and work through the examples in the JBoss at Work book. I assume installing two JREs on Windows XP is possible, and I know its possible to switch between JRE's in Eclispe. Any thoughts, suggestions, gotchas?

As well, can anyone suggest where to downnload JRE 1.4.2?

Thanks
BB

I'd recommend installing the JDK's rather then just the jre, installing them at the drive level- so maybe create a directory called C:\java\ then you can put the jdk's in that directory. I've never had the problem myself, but I hear tell that sometimes you can have issues with java in directories with spaces in the name(like Program Files/).
You can use java1.5 with jboss4.0.2, and you should be able to use java1.6-though I couldn't swear to that.

Is there any particular reason you're using jboss4.02?

Thanks for the information. I'm using 4.0.2 as the examples in JBoss At Work are built around that specific version.

Thanks
Bruce

Yes, it's possible to have different versions of the JDK or JRE installed at the same time. You can download Java 1.4 from the previous releases page.
