Hello JAV Folks,
So how do we get a JDK 1.1 system to look like and act like a JDK 1.2 system
JDK 1.2 javac compiler offers a -target switch to generate JDK 1.1 JVM 1.1
compliant class files that are compatible with JDK 1.1 class file format
since the class file format has changed from 1.1 to 1.2. These 1.1 class
files will execute under a JDK 1.1 JVM. These class files will not execute
under a JDK 1.2 JVM.
So I can develop using JDK 1.2 and use their compiler all for JDK 1.1 output
usable with a JDK 1.1 JVM. Yes...
I also assume that JDK 1.2 comes with it's classes.zip pre-built so I am
unable to use these classes with my JDK 1.1 class file output.
Can I take JDK 1.2 and build it all completely using the -target 1.1 and
produce a JDK 1.2 in JDK 1.1 class file output in the form of classes.zip ?
If I can do this than I can make a JDK 1.1 system to look like and act like
a JDK 1.2 system. This would permit me to take advantage of JDK 1.2 features
under a JDK 1.1 JVM.
If anyone can confirm this please acknowledge.
