Hi and thanks to those who take the time to
I am running OS X 10.4.2
java version "1.4.2_09"
I wanted to switch to using 1.5 with netbeans 4.1. I
noticed at java.com there is not a binary update.
I did update to 1.5.0 via developer.apple.com
According to apple this is not a replacement for JDK
1.4.2. Why would I need the 1.4 version if I have

Next, In school we are using 1.5 with netbeans 4.1
a windows environment. At home I have only OS X and
Linux. My Instructor said using OS X in class is

to 1.5 at home) are then any I should be aware of?

/usr/bin/java is 1.4.2 I would like to replace that
with 1.5 I noticed it was a symlink and tried to
rename java (1.4) to java_backup ( I was afraid to
delete it ). Can i just delete the symlink with "rm
/usr/bin/java"? Then symlink:
or is there a better solution? I want netbeans to
1.5.0 on default which I have looked how to do but
Is there an environment variable I can set in my
.bashrc file like
Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
