I had JDK&JRE7 on my pc, the 64 bit versions of both.
When I entered a site to play a java game, it directed me to Oracle website to download and install JRE 6_24. Why did that happen?
Because the applet was coded in 32 bits?
I thought a newer version will be capable of running an applet coded in a previous version.
Can you guys explain me why it happened?
And, if I have an 64 bit JDK, this doesn't mean that 32 bit machines won't run my program, right?
