Should one consider releasing a product built against the 1.1 framework rather than 1.0? Is it reasonable to insist on installation of the 1.1 framework, or is that unreasonable at this point from a marketing perspective?
The reason for posing this question, is that there is an inconsistency between the two versions of the framework when compiling an non J# assembly against a J# assembly using the CodeDom or the command line compilers.
All works fine on 1.1, however on 1.0, one is forced to reference the assembly which contains the J# JDK libraries - vjslib.dll - using its absolute path.
In the product, code and settings are distributed - not binaries - an absolute reference which is not transportable is unacceptable.
Is installation of 1.1 a reasonable prerequisite or is it marketing mistake?
Update -this is a marketing question, not one about the use of configuration files. Configuration files do not solve the dilemma described.
