Hey all,

Firstly - I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to VMs, but wouldn't mind learning. Basically I want to run Java 7 on a new pc, which I'd also like to keep in good shape, so am thinking about the best way to do it. I might be completely wrong, but isn't having an older version of Java a bit of a security hole?

Is there anything, or any particular hurdle, that I might face while trying to run Java 7 and a database in a virtual environment?
