Java can be obtained in one of two flavors: Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK). Unless you do programming in Java, JRE is usually sufficient for running programs and applets written in Java. JRE is also included in JDK so there is no need to install both.

Versions available

  • JDK 1.6.0: /opt/jdk1.6.0
  • JDK 1.5.0: /opt/jdk1.5.0*
  • JRE 1.4.1: /opt/j2re-1.4.1
  • JDK 1.4.1: /opt/j2sdk-1.4.1
  • JDK 1.3.0: /opt/j2sdk1_3_0_02

NOTE Some versions may not be installed on all our supported OSs. We will not be installing 1.3 or before on any newer OSs. Please also note that there are sometimes many minor version numbers in the directories.

For PCs, you may send a request to staff to have JRE or JDK installed on your machine. Please specify whether you would like JRE or JDK and the version number.
