Hello:

I'm using the Microsoft Java VM in my Java applications. Do I need to
download the Javasoft JDK?

Thanks

MS JavaVM is still at the JDK1.0.2 level, so as long as you don't
use any 1.1 features and are happy building stuff with the JDK1.0.2
compatibility mode of jConnect you should be OK.

On the other hand, JDK1.1 has alot of really cool stuff that you
should be becoming familiar with (Security, Internationalization,
built-in JDBC, Serialization, RMI, ...). Even if you are not
using any of this stuff in your work right now, it is important
for your own education -- and besides, JDK1.1 is FREE, and whenever
you have some weird behavior in the MS JavaVM, it is nice to be able
to switch over to a different environment to check whether you are
hitting a VM bug or a problem in your own work.
