1) Do I need to download and install the JAVA runtime environment only or the full developer kit?

2) When I shortly install Visual C++, what level of installation do I need? I have plenty of disc space but is there anything that I will not be able to make good use of (database support etc.)?

Regards,

On Windows NT, you can choose between three solutions for the interactive system:

- Java based system (portable on Unix).

- MFC's based system.

- Draw system (included with Open CASCADE).

Open CASCADE programming samples based on MFC's and on JAVA will be available for download soon (next week).

If you choose Java to develop, it is better to use the JDK.

You can use all types of installations for Visual C++, but it is better to install all on your disk because of response time.

Database support is not mandatory for Open CASCADE, but it can be useful if you need to create database oriented applications using Open CASCADE.

MFC's support is mandatory if you need to build interactive applications based on it.

In addition, it will be easier to install all the help files to develop faster.

Stay tuned !
