IB and Java


Senior member

Which Java version do IB users run with TWS please? I notice there's a J2re1.4.2 and also J2SE(TM) v 1.4.2 with Net beans and all that stuff I haven't got a clue what it means! :confused:

oaty, The first java version is the one you want, the net beans is for techies i think plus it takes up loads of space on your pc.

eddy, just go to the IB web site and take the link from the download TWS page and follow instrictions. If you already have it installed and the TWS platform works ok then thats all you need.
