Well, I did a google search to find some stuff and this was one of the pages i found: http://www.mepislovers-wiki.org/inde...new_JDK_or_JRE
Starting, I read that this was good for the jdk and jre so i got the lastest of both of them. Next, I tried jre 1.5 first. I followed all the steps and everthng ran smothley untill step 4. When I did that, was it supposed to show the files seperating from their package like in Windows? The reason is because the package still looked the same in the temporary Java folder I made in /home/Justin folder. It was like a small yellow box. Did it extract and I just didnt see the extracted files in that folder or did it just not extract? and when i ran that test it still said i had 1.4...Oh, about what i am using it for, mostly for making applications. Kinda new to Java so I'm not too advanced in it.
