    Default JRE 1.4 or 1.5

    Hi everyone,

    Is there JRE 4 or 5 for Win64?
    I am using a tool that requires this version of java. I've googled but could not find anything.
    Could anyone help?

    Thanks

    yes you are right but unfortunately I do not have access to that site.
    By the way I'm not sure that if WIn 64bit version iexists for java 5 becaus in other sites there was not any.

    What site don't you have access to? Google? Or the Java page? Either way, you're in trouble if that's the case.

    What happened when you tried downloading one of the versions on the site I posted?

    Why not? You might be able to find an alternative download site, but you're going to have a lot of trouble if you can't access the Oracle site.

    For that matter, why do you think you need Java 1.4 or 1.5?

    I need to compile some web applications with the usage of this version of java.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    I've given you a few suggestions. It seems pretty silly to not have access to Oracle, as any other download source will be less trustworthy. But Java is backwards compatible anyway, so I don't know why you think you have to use Java 1.4 for anything.

    Thanks, I really appreciate your help.
    yes Java is backwards compatible but the tool that I use (and should use because I need to test it) requires .class files compiled with Java 1.5 and lower.

    That doesn't really make sense to me, but okay. I've listed several options: try a newer version of Java, download an older version of Java from the Oracle site, or look for an alternative download source which is going to be less trustworthy. I think you're placing strange restrictions on yourself, but I don't know your context, so it's up to you. Good luck.
