How to install / Use Java 1.3.1_02 in CentOS 5.0

Post by raviprakashm » 2009/06/18 04:55:54

Hi,

I have recently installed CentOS 5 but unable to access oracle apps 11.5.9. Orace forum suggest me to install/use the same java version installed on server.

The Java version installed on server is 1.3.1_02.

Now my question is 1) How can I degrade my java version?
2) Where can I get the said java version? (other than sun / java site, bcoz whatever available on sun
is not working)
3) Is said version of java supported by CentOS 5?

Thanks in advance

Raviprakash.

I really hope you mean CentOS 5.3. If not, a fresh install of the current version might be better than updating from 5.0.

On what server? You are not clear on what in expected to run on the CentOS machine, which can be an Oracle server and/or client. That is a [b]very[/b] old java version.

The CentOS version in updates is java-1.6.0-openjdk-demo-1.6.0.0-0.30.b09.el5 but java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-1.4.2.0-40jpp.115 is also available as an alternative in the 5.3 base repo. To see what your are currently running please show the results of:
[code]
rpm -qa | grep java
java -version
[/code]

1. CentOS supports the alternatives system which should allow multiple installations of Java.
2. Not sure - perhaps a rebuild of an older version from SRPM on CentOS 5.3.
3. No, but that doesn't mean you can't make it work. Personally I'd look at upgrading the Java version on the unspecified server to a modern version.
