Description

When trying to run morpho under JDK1.1.8, I get the following error:

"Error loading class edu/ucsb/nceas/morpho/framework/ClientFramework: Bad
major version number"

Possibly because compiler needs to be told to compile for JDK1.1.8 by using "-
target 1.1" switch, as described in following Sun forum:

http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jsp?forum=37&thread=257438

Haven't tried building a version using InstallAnywhere, only tried running
from a modified morpho.bat (set classpath by hand to include
JDK1.1.8 "classes.zip" and also "swingall.jar" in addition to all the required
morpho jars).

Needs to be rectified before the next release.

History

#1 Updated by Dan Higgins over 17 years ago

Current release (1.1.2) does work with JDK1.1.8 on Macs OS 8,9. Changes are
needed in the routines that use https, however. Also, changes made in converting
code to use JWS also use some routines that don't exist in 1.1.8.

#2 Updated by Dan Higgins about 17 years ago

Primary reason for support for Java JRE 1.1.8 is for Macintosh OS 9. Apple is
strongly pushing for adaption of OS X which supports JRE 1.3. At this point we
have decided to not spend the time to support JRE 1.1.9 (i.e. Mac OS 9) and just
support JRE 1.3 (i.e. Mac OS X).
