Where do the Sun JDK distributions for Linux get installed?

Nathan Meyers

If you obtain the tar-based distributions, you can install them anywhere you want. If you use the RPMs, the installation location varies. For the two current (as of this writing) releases, the locations are:

  • 1.3.1 Release: /usr/java/jdk1.3.1

  • 1.4 beta: /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.0
