Java versions required by MapInfo MapXtreme for Java software.
What version of Java do the MapInfo products require?
MapXtreme 2.x supports both JDK 1.1.7 and JDK 1.2
Java version 1.2 provides better 2D graphics support and consequently supports things like True Type Fonts and rendering complex polygons (like donuts). These things are not supported in 1.1.7.
The Oracle8i, and X/Y data provider driver will work with JDK 1.1.7 or better, but the SpatialWare for Oracle7/8.0 and the IUS drivers do require JDK 1.2. There are classes which get referenced by the data providers that only exists in JDK 1.2.
Like the JDK, JDBC has different versions and should be validated for each platform.
