Linux without Java


Would like to know, if there is a possibility to use Linux without Java.

As I am trying to start to build the architecture of Linux being the operating system, with a database application that would host or control the flow of data for small size company to midsize company, at this stage.

Any suggestions at the architecture level would be appreciated.

Thank you

Why do you think that linux or any other operating system needs Java? Only programs written in Java needs it, so Linux does not need it. About "architecture level", sorry, but I don't known what does it means, but it is suitable for "controling flow of data".

It's certainly possible to run Linux without java, by just not installing it. It's not necessary unless you need to run java applications. As for the rest of your post, I have no idea at all what you're planning. Buzzwords != communication.

Thank you for your responses.

I am in the phase of building the blocks that constitute the whole computing system comprising at this stage of the software, which consists of the following:

1.operating system = Linux.

2.database application = need suggestions, as Oracle for example is based on Java to my knowledge. of Linux to the internet, which I think is not an issue. security = need suggestions.

5.platform security = I think it is within Linux.

This is for a start, as I am in the process of building the whole system from scratch.

As for the hardware, that is the server, I would be going through it at a later stage.

Again thank you for your comments.

I'm hearing that you want a secure platform to host your Intranet applications, and that you don't want the applications to be built on a Java-based stack. Not a problem.

Oracle's database is not "based on Java." It's fine to use (and buy) Oracle if you want to, but it's more common to have MariaDB, PostgresSQL or MongoDB as the database, and then an applications layer based on Django, Rails, node.js or PHP.
