i have an applet i created in 2000. it works but im changing it. to start all i did was add one line setBackground(Color.green); because the new default is white not gray. i compiled it and jarred the class files but now i get an error
java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Farm : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0
thanks maneesh. that is probably the case. when i run apps from the command line it works fine but evidently the browser is using the older version.
hmmm. not sure what to do here. i do have 2 versions of the jre. the only one that shows up in add/remove programs is java6 update20. i also have java7EE which has the newer jre. i had to set the PATH when i first installed it. firefox is my default browser.
hmmm. apparently i can run it in eclipse if i can figure out how.
