I know this topic isn''t strictly related to Java games programming, however I thought it might be interesting to hear from any developers out there who are developing software using Java on a Windows 2000 machine.
Is anyone out there doing this?, and if so have they experienced any problems? What JDK''s have you tested? etc.
The reason I ask is because I recently tried compiling and running an application I have written in Java on a Win2000 machine. It compiled fine however when I tried to run the application it hung the JVM, no error message, just froze up. When I run the application using Kawa''s (my Java IDE) debug mode it seemed the application was freezing when it got to a section of code that was using streams. So it would seem streams are flakey under Win2000. I haven''t really looked into this in any depth however, but it got me wondering what everyone elses experiences with Java and Win2000 are.
It would be intersting to hear what people have to say!
Ok I''ve tried the latest drivers for my TNT2 card and it appears to have improved the rate of crashes. I''ve managed to continuosly develop my Java project with not a single crash for a total of about 8 hours. I usually get one crash an hour so this is good.
I''m not using any fancy IDE at this stage, just UltraEdit.
