How to install JDK in Linux

leave a comment »

A classmate has told me that he had problems installing JDK in Linux, we just need to install them in the right way, these are the steps:

1.- Create a folder in your system, and then enter into a terminal.

[edison@localhost ~]$ su 
[root@localhost edison]# cd /home 
[root@localhost home]# cd edison 
[root@localhost edison]# cd Java


Download JDK 6 and put it inside the folder you have created.

[root@localhost JAVA]# chmod +x jdk-6u14-linux-i586.bin 
[root@localhost JAVA]# ./jdk-6u14-linux-i586.bin

[root@localhost JAVA]# JAVA_HOME="/home/edison/JAVA/jdk1.6.0_14" 
[root@localhost JAVA]# PATH=${PATH}:jdk1.6.0_14/bin


If we put the java –version command to verify wheter we have done it fine.

[root@localhost JAVA]# java –version


java version "1.6.0_14"

Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_14-b08)

Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 14.0-b16, mixed mode)

We can also use to verify.

root@localhost JAVA]# javac

The drivers will be available to the Linux community and customers alike, and will enhance the performance of the Linux operating system when virtualized on Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V or Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V.


Today we’re releasing Linux device driver code to the Linux kernel community. This is a significant milestone because it’s the first time we’ve released code directly to the Linux community. Additionally significant is that we are releasing the code under the GPLv2 license, which is the Linux community’s preferred license.”

What motivated Microsoft to do this? …
