How to install Java jdk and jre in linux


I just installed ubuntu 10.10 yesterday. I need java jdk and jre. It says I have some sort of open jdk? I'm not sure, but I downloaded the .bin folder and changed permissions, and then run the installer. It said it was done, but when I went back to javas website to verify it, it said I still was running the open jdk. Can someone help me?

JDK is a development kit, not the runtime environment needed to run programs like frostwire etc. Make sure you have JRE, it should be in your synaptic package manager.
