March 25th, 2009, 10:14 PM
Hi all,

Is it possible to have java 5 and java 6 installed on the same machine and have them co exist peacefully?

The same goes for Tomcat 5 & 6 can both be installed at the same time.

I ask because i have an application to install that requires the v5 of both above and will not work with 6 ... but I use v6 of the above for supported stuff.

Thanks for your answers.

java 5 and 6 can coexist peacefully. one of them will be default and you will have to call the other one explicitly if you want to use it, but you can have them both installed.
