    Install the "new" java and compile, the compiler will tell you what's wrong.

    Which should be nothing.
    Java is (generally) pretty good at backwards compatibility.
    You might have fun moving from 1.1 to 1.6, but 5 to 6 should not cause any problems.

    He will, probably, get a slew of warnings, however, and he should investigate those (especially any "deprecated" warnings).

    Was there much deprecated between 5 and 6?
    At least that wasn't already so?

    Doesn't matter. That was just meant as a "general" process.

    Java 1.6 introcduced quite some new methods (see the API docs, you can see "since 1.6" all over the place), but as far as I know no methods were marked deprecated since Java 1.5.

    kind regards,
