What version of Java comes with Linux?


I am running Slack 9.0, and I have heard that it comes with Java. What version is this? Is it the one that SUN puts out or a one that the GNU project produced? I need the one that SUN puts out.

there's only the gcc-java-compiler in
Slack ... you'll have to get the jdk/jre
of the sun-site yourself.

Cheers,

You can get the latest SDK from Sun for free (I d/l'd the latest a few weeks ago and installed without any probs). For a frontend, I'd suggest Netbeans (the Sun Java IDE is built on the Netbeans engine). Or, you can try the Sun IDE, or Eclipse, or any others you can find. After using Netbeans, I'm partial to Netbeans. YMMV

If you simply want to know the version you have at the moment (and where it is located), simply try this:

localhost:~ # which java
/usr/lib/java/jre/bin/java
localhost:~ # java -version
java version "1.3.1_04"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1_04-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1_04-b02, mixed mode)
localhost:~ #

Actually, there's a precompiled version of the j2sdk on the slackware site itself, its just not put on the CD out of space considerations, check your favorite slack mirror, its under extra/

Its in package .tgz format, so installation is a breeze. I've also gotten more mileage out of the sdks from the blackdown.org site.

Cheers,

Finegan
