Before i ask my question I want to say im very happy to discover this forum, i didn't know a popular java games forum existed, i shouldve looked i guess!
Anyway, being very new to online java games development, i have a question.
In my applet i have used classed which are new to Java 1.6, the SwingWorker for one example. Currently I have a small bit of code that checks the java version installed on the computer, if it's < 1.6 then it will trigger a download of the latest java version (using the deployment toolkit provided on the sun site).
What i want to ask is would there be some users who would find this annoying, do some people prefer to keep a few versions back?
Also I heard that the Mac JVM has differnt version numbers, would the current mac jvm support all the classed in Java 1.6?
Sorry if any of these questions are stupid!
Thanks for any help!
