I have write code using GWT 2.6.1 and jdk1.5. It's working fine  in Internet Explorer 5, 6 but it's throwing error in IE11 that 'attachEvent' object or method not found. When I search in code, then I found that cache.html files contains attach event. And attach event not supported by IE11. What will be the solution. Please help me. Thanks in advance.

IE11 is supposed to load the same permutation as Firefox, not the one for IE6 (!)
You need to check which "browser mode" and "document mode" are used when loading your page. Ideally, your page uses "standards mode" which should trigger the correct mode. But if it's quirks mode, it might break.
For legacy applications, you may want to use X-UA-Compatible to make IE11 behave as if it were an older version.
But for long-term support, you really need to upgrade your application (use standards mode, use GWT 2.8, which btw requires Java 7, which btw is already EOL'd for 2 years)
