J2SE 1.4.2 reached end of its service life - which version do we need now?


Hi experts,

Wanted to download the latest patch/version of the J2SE 1.4.2_* - BUT :


On October 30, 2008 J2SE 1.4.2 reached the end of its service life (EOSL). Customers interested in learning more about Sun's Java Technology Support and EOL policy

Customers interested in continuing to receive critical fixes, are encouraged to consider the following options:

Migrate to Java SE for Business 1.4.2

Migrate to the latest Java SE release

For developer needs, all products that have completed the EOL transition period will be moved to the Archive area.


I got a download link for the latest SDK (19) - what versions should be usedin FUTURE!!!!!

And where to get j2sdk-1_4_2_19-windows-amd64.exe?

kind regards
