I have a web based JAVA application that requires JAVA 1.31_18.  Unfortunately I have several users who need to use later versions of JAVA.  I know that I can have multiple versions of JAVA on the same PC but don't know how to make 1.31_18 only work with this one particular application and let the latest version work with everything else.

    Sure. Its quite possible, make sure that you give full path of java binary while running it.

    If this is an applet, you can use an OBJECT tag instead of an APPLET tag.

      width="200" height="200">
      <PARAM name="code" value="Applet1.class">

    The clsid specifies the version to load.  The for sections: 0013-0001-0018 are to indicate the specific version of java.
