I'm taking a class on Java programming. I'd like to install Java on my home PC. According to our class' website I am supposed to
Go to SUN Java Web site located at
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/download.html
Download J2EE1.4SDK for Windows/Linus/Solaris
But there is no download link on this page. There is a message on that page that says
On October 30, 2008 J2SE 1.4.2 reached the end of its service life (EOSL). Customers interested in learning more about Sun's Java Technology Support and EOL policy »Read More
I don't want to learn more. I just simply want to install Java. If this is their cryptic way of saying that there is a newer version, I'd like to know where the newer version is. There is a Download tab on this page. When I choose it, I'm given many different options. I don't know which one to choose, or even if the one I need is listed there. Downloading my best guess didn't give me what I need. Ultimately, according to our class website, after downloading and installing, I'm supposed to end up with the following directories
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_xx\bin
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_xx\demo
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_xx\include
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_xx\jre
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_xx\lib
with the bin directory containing javac.exe and java.exe
Can anyone help me?
