Hi,

How do you import SwingWorker? I can't compile my app, keeps complaining about this line:

import javax.swing.SwingWorker;

which I've taken from examples. I'm assuming it's because I have an old version of java or something?

Thanks

if it is different version, make sure you have installed 1.6 successfully and the path variable is updated accordingly!

Ok I am still pointing to javac here:

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_09\bin\javac.exe

but I don't have a 1.6 jdk folder, just:

    C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_03

and I don't see javac in there....

then you would have downloaded JRE1.6 and installed. You have to download JDK1.6...

wait - if i compile with 1.6, does that mean users that only have the 1.5.9 or whatever JDK won't be able to see my applets? I mena is this stuff backwards compatible?

thats correct.

if you download just swingworker class and include that with your applet then your users will not need 1.6
