Does the binary of JVM (e.g. java.exe) provide an option to work in a backward compatible mode?
My problem is I have JRE 1.6.0_01 installed on my machine and I have an application that requires JRE 1.4.2_XX. I don't want to install JRE 1.4.2 only for this one application.
PS: javac supports "-target=version" to generate class files for target VM version.
