I cannot give an "official" answer but I can tell you that we have both 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 installed for 902 and 904 application, and we have no problem at all.
our test-department thinks, that all Internet-Explorer-calls to a JVM via *.jar-files now start the version 18.104.22.168 and not the old version 22.214.171.124.
If this is correct, then they are right, that the whole functionality of the big forms-application has to be tested against the 126.96.36.199 ...
Till yesterday I thought, that all installed JInitiator-versions are independent from each other. Seeing, that each version patches the same registry-keys has scared me a little bit.
We have versions 9,13 and 18 running. They definitely run seperate versions of Jiniator.
There are issues with using multiple versions however. If the browser session has already started a JVM it won't start another. If the jiniator version ipreviously started is too high the application won't start. This is counter inuitive. If you start the new app first the old app won't start from the same browser session. It will start from a new browser instance.
Have you tried running your new application with 188.8.131.52?
You can run as many Jinits on the same machine as your hard drive can hold as long as they are versions 184.108.40.206 or newer. Only the one which is called in the CLSID or mime type (of the html) will be used.
Also, javaw is not called when running applets.
You can prove all of this with SysInternals FileMon:
However, as already mentioned, you will not be able to run multiple versions from within an existing browser session. This will cause the browser to crash.
If you have a problem with "jinitiator 220.127.116.11 is not installed properly" is just deinstall it and reinstall. This work with me.
I have 2 applications running on many terminals, each having an instance of 18.104.22.168 for an old application and 22.214.171.124 for a new application. For over a year, there haven't been any problems reported, but I'd certainly like to know if people have faced any - for precautionary measures.
