Subject Multiple JDK's on Windows [ marginally off-topic ]
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2001 00:24:26 GMT
Hi all,

If you've read the subject line, you'll understand that I'm a 
glutton for punishment.

I've got a requirement for having JDK1.1, JDK1.2, JDK1.3 (and
soon JDK1.4) installed to create releases specific for the
particular platforms.

So, this should be fairly simple, but JavaSoft caught the 
Microsoft disease at JDK1.2 and started to integrate all this
stuff into the registry.  So, installing JDK1.2 after JDK1.3
causes all sorts of badness, regardless of PATH or CLASSPATH

I'd just like to be able to mimic Unix behaviour and set the
PATH/CLASSPATH appropriately and have it all work nicely.

Anybody out there actually done this under Windows ?  If so,
want to drop me a line.

I know this is slightly off-topic, but as I'm using Ant for 
all of the building, I'm sure this is a topic of interest to
more than just me.
