    3. why do we need the

      ## export JAVA_HOME JDK ##
      export JAVA_HOME=”/usr/java/jdk1.7.0″

      ## export JAVA_HOME JRE ##
      export JAVA_HOME=”/usr/java/jre1.7.0″

      after installation?
      what’s the intention?

      • Hi asker,

        By using environment variables you can easily change a configuration setting for one or more applications. Example JAVA_HOME is widely used environment variable on Java programs. So setting the JAVA_HOME environment variable is not mandatory, but I recommend it… :)

    4. I found that Oracle’s Java 7 release wasn’t really working for me. Any way to revert the settings to their defaults (so my system will be using the already-installed OpenJDK version instead)?

      • Hi DaVince,

        You can actually use both OpenJDK and Oracle’s Java 7 simultaneously.

        You can run following commands and select OpenJDK instead of Oracle’s Java 7:

        
        alternatives --config java
        alternatives --config javaws
        
        ## 32 Bit ##
        alternatives --config libjavaplugin.so
        
        ## 64-bit ##
        alternatives --config libjavaplugin.so.x86_64
        
        ## JDK ##
        alternatives --config javac
        

        Check more from this guide 6. Swap between OpenJDK and Sun/Oracle Java JDK/JRE 6 and 7 versions

        Then if you want / you have to use Java 7 later then you can switch it back same way or use directly like following:

        
        /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_01/jre/bin/java -jar some_java_application.jar

    5. What happens after an upgrade of either openjdk or sun jdk? Does one have to go through all these again?

      Reply
      • Hi Napo,

        Actually yes, but there is of course workaround for that…you could also use /usr/java/default or /usr/java/latest and then after upgrade it’s work with any other actions following commands should work smoothly.
        JDK

        
        ## java ##
        alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/latest/jre/bin/java 20000
        ## javaws (32-bit only) ##
        alternatives --install /usr/bin/javaws javaws /usr/java/latest/jre/bin/javaws 20000
         
        ## Java Browser (Mozilla) Plugin 32-bit ##
        alternatives --install /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so /usr/java/latest/jre/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so 20000
         
        ## Java Browser (Mozilla) Plugin 64-bit ##
        alternatives --install /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so.x86_64 /usr/java/latest/jre/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so 20000
         
        ## Install javac only if you installed JDK (Java Development Kit) package ##
        alternatives --install /usr/bin/javac javac /usr/java/latest/bin/javac 20000
        alternatives --install /usr/bin/jar jar /usr/java/latest/bin/jar 20000
        

        JRE

        
        ## java ##
        alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/latest/bin/java 20000
         
        ## javaws (32-bit only) ##
        alternatives --install /usr/bin/javaws javaws /usr/java/latest/bin/javaws 20000
         
        ## Java Browser (Mozilla) Plugin 32-bit ##
        alternatives --install /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so /usr/java/latest/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so 20000
         
        ## Java Browser (Mozilla) Plugin 64-bit ##
        alternatives --install /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so.x86_64 /usr/java/latest/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so 20000
        

        You could easily check where your default and latest point with following command:

        
        ls -la /usr/java
        ...
        lrwxrwxrwx.  1 root root   16 Oct 15 13:59 default -> /usr/java/latest
        drwxr-xr-x.  3 root root 4096 Oct 25 23:44 jdk1.7.0
        drwxr-xr-x. 10 root root 4096 Oct 25 23:44 jdk1.7.0_01
        lrwxrwxrwx.  1 root root   21 Oct 25 23:44 latest -> /usr/java/jdk1.7.0_01
        

        Of course this latest should always point to latest java so if you want to use OpenJDK 6 and Oracle’s JDK/JRE 7 then you should do some manual work anyways. I personally prefer this absolute method (I change between Java versions using alternatives –config command), because I want to be sure what version I’m using, but actually for many users (who just use Java especially JRE) it might be better use latest version always…and this is good point and I will add that also this guide. Thanks! :)

    9. All this doesn’t work for Fedora 16 and JRE – Java 7u2 :-(

      Reply
      • Hi gizmo,

        I just updated my Java 7 to latest version 7u2 and also updated this guide and yes it works for me.

        Could you tell more specific, what error messages you get? Or why it doesn’t work?

        Reply
    10. What I do is;

      I download JRE rpm version 7u2
      then:

      sudo -i
      rpm -Uvh /path/to/binary/jre-7u2-linux-i586.rpm
      alternatives –install /usr/bin/java java /usr/java/latest/bin/java 20000
      alternatives –install /usr/bin/javaws javaws /usr/java/latest/bin/javaws 20000
      alternatives –install /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libjavaplugin.so libjavaplugin.so /usr/java/latest/lib/i386/libnpjp2.so 20000

      and after:
      java -version

      it says

      java version “1.7.0_02”
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_02-b13)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 22.0-b10, mixed mode)

      so OK.

      But after few minutes when trying:
      java -version

      it says Bash: java: command not found

      So I guess there is something wrong with my JAVA :-(
      Before I installed Libreoffice and it installed OpenJDK 1.6.0 and 1.7.0
      but I need Oracle’s one to print my internet invoices

      What am I doing wrong?

      Reply
      • Also I uninstalled jre (OpenJDK 1.6.0 and 1.7.0 with whole Libreoffice and Oracle 7u2), but this:

        alternatives –config java

        shows 2 alternatives to choose from:

        *+ 1 /usr/java/latest/jre/bin/java
        2 /usr/java/latest/bin/java

        So some trash still there?

            Thank you JR for your help and for great tutorial.
            It was definitely my fault.
            I just wish that now after installing Libreoffice it will still work.

    12. Okay! Great post! Thanks a lot! Managed to get Java up and running. Although, I have one doubt. How do I keep this JDK up to date with future releases from Oracle ? Since they often release updates to their JDKs it is necessary to keep up to date. How do I go about this?

      • Hi Sreeram,

        You have to download and install Oracle Java manually, because of Oracle Binary Code License Agreement for Java SE, but it’s easy process if you use this guide “latest” method.
