Installing Java 1.6 SDK NOT JRE

Post by ipomp » 2011/03/01 02:33:59

## CentOS 5.2 ##

I am trying to get a Java 1.6 JDK installed on my CentOS server. I followed the official CentOS instructions found [url=]here[/url] using the Sun 1.6 JDK install, and as indicated on those instructions, after using alternatives to activate my new Java install I am faced with choosing a 1.6 JRE installation. The problem is, I need the JDK (with the jar, javac, etc. developer tools). Is there another way to do this?

CentOS Java Wiki page is outdated and currently not maintained. An initiative to remedy this is currently in progress. However, until this changes, you may want to take a look at [url=]this draft manual for installing Sun JDK[/url], published on my CentOS Wiki page, and see if it helps resolve your issue.
