Java application runs with 1.3.1 but needs 1.4

I have a java application (not applet) that needs to run with version 1.4 of Java.

The Mac was recently updated to OS 10.3.5 and java 1.4   Running java -version returns build 1.4.2_05-141

When the application runs System.getProperty("java.version") returns 1.3.1

I added an entry to the MRJApp.properties file:

com.apple.mrj.application.JVMVersion=1.4

but this had no effect.

Thanks

John

Instead of setting the com.apple.mrj.application.JVMVersion to 1.4, try setting it to 1.4*. This makes the application use the highest version of Java 1.4 available.
