yo! i''m in the process of converting my lil'' applet to 1.1 (1.3 at the moment), so one thing came to my mind. can''t I just copy the missing classes from 1.3 to the same dir as my applet and then everything would work nice and dandy? that should work if 1.3 is based on 1.1, right? or is it a whole lot different, meaning i would have to copy a lot of classes? there might be some sort of copyright issue too, i guess. perhaps someone could enlighten me on this? pros and cons about this would also be nice.

1.1 and 1.3 are vastly different. 1.1 is Java, >1.2 is Java2. You can use swing with 1.1 if the proper swing package is installed. ''Converting'' your program from 1.3 to 1.1 should be as simple as trying to run it on a 1.1 JVM and fixing the errors.

if one was hired to do a game where NO downloads were a requirement, i dunno.

howerver, i use 1.4 instead cause 1.1 would be like using directx 3

well you get the picture

hm it depeneds on which classes you''re using

the BIG improvements are the VolitileImage and BufferedStrategy, but there are lots of other small improvements as well, like a couple of days ago i discoved invalidate() in Polygon.

so have a look at http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4/docs/relnotes/features.html
