I'm not a Java expert but I think that, in CodeWarrior 5 for Mac OS, the Java 2 support is curently limited to compilation only. The 'Metrowerks CodeWarrior : Java Support : Libraries' subfolder contains an 'rt.jar' core API library for JDK 1.2 that (as I understand it) essentially replaces the old 'classes.zip' & assorted jar files ('swingall.jar', etc.) used by JDK 1.1.x. [It seems that the 'rt.jar' file can also be built manually via the 'JavaRuntime.mcp' project in the 'Metrowerks CodeWarrior : Java Suppport : Java_Source : Java2' subfolder.]
However, you may not be able to actually run your compiled 1.2 applets on a Mac because Apple's latest MRJ 2.2 Runtime only supports up to 1.1.8 features. If you're an ADC Select/Premier member, you might have early access to Apple's next-generation MRJ Runtime. Otherwise, you may need to wait for the Mac OS X Client public beta this summer, which will incorporate full Java 2 support (see Apple's Mac OS X DP 4 press release
); or, just use any available non-Mac machine (or try a Windows emulator such as 'Virtual PC') to run your 1.2 applets.
For pointers to online Java resources (including forums, mailing lists, newsgroups, etc.), see Apple's own Developer Java
web page, or your CodeWarrior 5 installation's Java Links page ('Documentation : CDWeb : programming : JavaURL.htm'). E.g., the Sun mothership itself hosts several Java forums
