Running MSJava and Sun Java on the same system

Posted on 2007-10-03

I am running a Windows 2003 server with multiple applications on it. Two of the apps need Java. One of the apps is going to be upgraded and will need the latest version of SUN Java, but the other app will not run with that. In fact the other app will only work with MS Java. Is there a way to run both versions of Java on the same system?

    just have them both installed, and specify the path to the vm each needs.
    they shouldn't have any problems coexisting.

    How would you do that? The applications do run in a browser, but how would I tell one to use MSJava and the other to use Sun Java?

    then they are applets, and not applications.
    Use the <object> tag for the java applet requiring the sun vm.
    not aware of a way to enforce ms vm to be used.
