So close yet so far. I am just writing the version.txt file
The instructions state
indicating the exact version of JDK you used, and the host platform you worked on.
I have been using the Eclipse IDE and Ant to build the runme jar file. My confusion is that eclipse apparently uses its own Java compiler and i am not sure what the ANT javac option is using to build and compile the classes. I am running the ant build under a separate JRE called jdk1.6.0_13
I am testing the application under the latest the JRE
java version "1.6.0_13"
java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_13-b03)
java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.3-b02, mixed mode, sharing)
I have been looking at some post on goggle and here but i cant seem to figure what i put in the version.txt
Do i put jdk1.6.0_13 or jre java version "1.6.0_13"
Some please help and hopefully I can finally submit this.
You should put in both the JDK (javac) and JRE (java) versions. Also you should not rely on the IDE internal compiler/runtime. When you do your final testing... do the compilation/running in the command prompt to ensure it works with the installed java environment. Same goes for javadoc command. Of course the 2 really makes no difference.

Thanks K. Tsang. I was playing with the eclipse settings and it was using the correct version for the ant javac call. Thanks I will add both the jre and jdk versions in the version.txt
