WAS Sneak Preview & JVM > 1.3.1_08

I have installed (successfully) the WAS 6.3 sneak preview.  However, I am developing a program that uses some classes that are new with Java 1.4.2. I can get these compiled OK with the sneak prview, but cannot execute them. (I have installed JVM 1.3.1_08).

Can install a new Eclipse version on top of the sneak preview? If so, do I need to install the JVM for 1.4.2?  The 1.4.2 JDK?

I need some detailed installation instructions to get all this done.  Can anyone help?

    uninstall Java and sneak preview edition, then reinstall WAS6.3 which also installs JVM 1.3.1_07

    Hope this helps

      Not sure what that will do for me...  I need to use 1.4.2 JVM to run programs that compile using 1.4.2 classes. WAS6.3 barfs when I install the 1.4.2 JVM. Or am I missing somehting easy here?

      Can you explain a little more how I can do what I want?

    You will not be able to run a Java 1.4.2 application under WAS 6.30 sneek preview, only Java 1.3.1_07 is supported!

    The newest Version (Beta 5 I guess) supports J2SE 1.4.2, but you cannot download it yet. You will have to wait for that, or you need to change your code that it fits Java 1.3.1 😔

      Thanks, Christoph.

      BTW, I am using sneak preview with 1.3.1_08.  I believe that it was with 1.3.1_09 that the problems crept in.
