Hi, for a long time we build our class files for our applet with ant using JDK 1.3.1.
For some days I have been testing with IDEA 3( and we will for sure replace our JBuilder Prof. by it).
I haven't actually expected any problems from the Ant integration because IMO it's just about starting an external tool. But if we build our Applet JAR from the IDEA integrated Ant the class files cannot be understood by the browser's built-in VMs. IE logs ClassNotFoundExceptions whereas Netscape logs a "Bad major version number java.lang.ClassFormatError".
On the other hand if we configure the browsers to use the Java Plugin it works.
So have the class files been compiled by an incompatible Java VM? I have also a JDK 1.4.0 on my PC (Windows NT 4).
I am not an Ant expert but I think any installed Ant should evaluate the JAVA_HOME environment variable for the JDK used for compilation. And this the JDK 1.3.1 in our case.
Has anyone ideas what is happening?
