    MS (VM) & Sun Java (6.x)

    In the options (Advanced) there are choices relating to Java (Sun) and then next Microsoft (VM).

    Do you "pick" one OR the other here? aren't they serving the same purpose(s)?

    Any conflicts evident?

    Regards,

    A good explanation of these are Post 321496 and the posts following. Further information is Transitioning from the Microsoft Java Virtual machine. I have not seen any conflicts from running them both.

    SMBP:

    Thanks... I was/am aware of the "nature" of the JM... MS's and/or Sun's...

    From what I can tell from the reading, access to both is fine... leaning toward Sun's JRE seems preferrable...

    Re: MS (VM) & Sun Java (6.x)

    I would stick with the Sun version myself, for two reasons:

    1) Sun made Java. They know it better than anyone else (I would hope)
    2) The Microsoft version contains proprietary extensions and is being phased out.

    One of the reasons for the issues around the JM, is the pact that the MS version did in fact run better than the Sun version, because of the improvements that MS made. But Sun did NOT like it and sued.
