Installation of java on RHEL 5


Hii guys....

I need to install java 1.4 or higher on RHEL 5 (standard SDK is fine,don't need J2EE). I downloaded jdk-6u12-linux-i586-rpm.bin from java site. Is this the package or is it different. Also I need the steps to install it....

Yes, J2SE 6 qualifies as "Java 1.4 or higher" (it's actually numbered "J2SE1.6").

And yes, Sun has excellent, step-by-step for installing Java under Linux on their web site. Just Google for it.

One additional caveat: your distro might already have GJC (Gnu Java). If so, I would encourage you to *uninstall* it before you begin working with Sun Java.

'Hope that helps .. PSM

no you should not , as long as you have done the alternative command . the system would use that Java Version as default. all settings are fine.

just remember if you are using SDK 1.5.06 or a new version of Java for web development , make sure to update your SOAP .

google -> saaj.jar , download it and put it under

<JAVA-HOME>/jre/lib

and everything should be fine from there.

Regards,

MaaS
