    JDK 1.5 Download

    So for my AP Computer Science test this year we have a simulation that only runs on JDK 1.5. I have the latest version installed on my computer. I uninstalled it, and went looking for 1.5, with no results. I was hoping someone could point me to a link where I could download JDK 1.5, thanks.

    Check this out. I think JDK 1.5 is the same as JDK 5.0 (but I'm not positive).

    Yes, JDK 5 is the same as 1.5, and how that helps his question whatsoever I don't know. The latest version of Java is 1.6.

    You'll probably have to uninstall Java, delete any entries in the registry as well as deleting any related folders and then installing JDK 1.5.

    You can have more than one installation of JDK on your system. For example, I have JDK 1.4, and JDK 1.5 installed on my Linux Fedora box. It all comes down to setting the PATH ENVIRONMENT.

    On my machine, I have two user accounts, each using a different JDK on their path. So, when I want to test something on JDK1.4, or JDK1.5...I just switch accounts.

    I believe that you can do the same thing on Windows XP as well. Just add the jdk path on "User Variables for user_account" for the account that you wish to have jdk1.4 for example, and set jdk1.5 for the second account similarly.

    Cheers,

    you can use the -source and -target flags of javac to compile 1.5 source to work on 1.5 JREs even if you are using the JDK 1.6 compiler too. It is probably best to install the latest compilers and then specify your source and target for the minimum JRE you want it to run on.
