nixnote need Java but Java is not installed (Slackware 14.0)


I have download nixnote-1.3-2.i386.rpm and use rpm2txz conversion to install. When I run it from command line, I got an error as follow.
Code:
$ nixnote 
/usr/share/nixnote/nixnote.sh: line 118: java: command not found
The line 118 in nixnote.sh said
Code:
java -Xmx$NN_XMX -Xms$NN_XMS -XX:NewRatio=$NN_NEW_RATIO $NN_GC_OPT $NN_DEBUG -classpath $NN_CLASSPATH cx.fbn.nevernote.NeverNote --name=$NN_NAME --home=$NN_HOME --sync-only=$NN_SYNCONLY
Is Java installed in Slackware 14.0? I have full installation of Slackware 14.0.

I have no knowledge about Java and don't know how I can check if Java is installed.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Java is actually quite easy to install under Slackware 14.0.

Check out the java/ directory in extra/. Download it locally on your machine, with all its content.

Then download the Java tarball from the Oracle site. Choose between JRE and JDK according to your needs. Be sure to download the right package for your architecture (32-bit or 64-bit). Put the downloaded jre-*.tar.gz or jdk-*.tar.gz file in your java/ directory.

Make sure java.SlackBuild is executable and run it as root:

Code:
# ./java.SlackBuild
The resulting jre-*.txz or jdk-*.txz package can be found in /tmp.

JRE and JDK can't be distributed as is anymore due to some licensing issues.

Cheers,

Niki

@OP
For the future, you can find answers to most of your Slackware-related questions (including java) in the Slackware wiki
