Hello, i'm getting this message when trying to execute Eclipse/BIRT, can someone point me to the site where i can download a JVM which is 1.5 or greater please?

Incompatible JVM
---------------------------
Version 1.4.2_03 of the JVM is not suitable for this product. Version: 1.5 or greater is required.
---------------------------
I've downloaded a bunch of stuff so far but not sure if its really the JVM!

Thanks very much for any assistance on this!

Yes, but the version you should be greater than 1.4

to check the jdk version installed in your machine. You can use this command:

java -version

in command prompt..

Why use Java1.4 when Java6 has been available for 2½ years?

Because some customers just won't upgrade?

I can't agree more to that. It is so nettling that we need to forget all the beauties provided by 5 and 6.

The link I provided gives 6u14, so we would be able to see 1 happy man atleast
