Java Plugin 1.3.1.x and 1.4.2.x coexistence issue
Posted on 2004-04-23
Our customer has application where there is must of JRE 1.3.1.x plugin is needed. But we gave him application which must require JRE 1.4.2.x.
Customer's browser's default JRE is getting overwrriten.
We followed following approache to resolve
1) install JRE1.3.1.x and make that as default JRE
2) Now for JRE1.4.2.x, we told cutomer to go for custom installation so that he should be not selecting this JRE1.4.2.x as default.
Even though customer's system has defined the JRE version in his html for his application, but the jer1.4.2.x is getting used when he tries to acces his application after JRE 1.4.2.x comes and sit in the machine.
Customer wants both co-exist. This looks near not to possible. Is there any way to handle this issue and make my customer happy?
