    4. Hi,

      I was using this because I am trying to use the juniper vpn service. I am using fedora 19 with a 64bit firefox. Juniper VPN requires a 32bit jre.

      Is it possible to have 32bit jre and firefox plugin with a 64bit firefox?

    9. […] you’re looking installation instruction for older Oracle Java versions, then check Install Sun/Oracle Java JDK/JRE 7 on Fedora 20/19/18, CentOS/Red Hat (RHEL) 6.5/5.10 or Install Sun/Oracle Java JDK/JRE 6 on Fedora 20/19/18, CentOS/Red Hat (RHEL) […]

    10. Just wanted to let everyone know, it also works with the newer Java 8. The steps are pretty much the same, only the names of the rpm packages have a different version number.

      • Hi faharuru,

        Try to add full path to this command, like:

        
        rpm -Uvh /full/path/jdk-8u5-linux-x84.rpm

    12. I have already commented a huge post to this topic, but was deleted by admins.

      There is one general rule for centos/rhel/fedora. do NOT use Oracle rpms. If you really need elaborate with “upstream” blobs. Use *tarballs*. Theirs RPMS can actually harm your system.

      Once you have unpacked jdk fom tarball, then it is simple task to set up an alternatives. Currently Fedora have packed openjdk7 and 8. RRHEL have the same, + Openjdk6, oracle 6, 7 and all IBM’s javas.

      If there is any serious reson why those RPMS are not enough, please let me know. I can fix them.

      • Hi judovana,

        Your earlier comment is not deleted, but it was marked as spam (automatically) due to the multiple links.

        Have to say, that I haven’t see theirs RPMs causing any harm to systems, but you might be right. This is not guide, which Java to choose and why, this is guide howto install Oracle Java.

        I totally agree that, the OpenJDK is good choice and good alternative, but I have see many cases where only Oracle Java is working / working properly, especially on corporate environments.

        And yes you will need Oracle Java if you are developer and you have to make sure that your own app work with Oracle Java.

        The idea of this site is to share information and not directly blame or hate some app or organization.

      • Interesting clarification, indeed. I’m really lost at this point, I’m trying to learn Clojure and every post I’ve read indicates to get Java, JDK, but lack to explain which JDK. From quite long now I’m quite used to use Openjava (especially for R scripts), now I wonder which JDK I should choose with this purpose, I’d appreciate any clue on this.
        Txe.
