Which is the correct version of Java SDK that needs to be installed for Prospect Core 8.0.7?
The Release Notes indicate that Java SDK 1.5.0_17 is required for Prospect 188.8.131.52.
However, the Sun/Java website indicates the following when attempting to request 1.5 version 17.
In IBM's release notes for various technologies, all these expressions for Java have been seen:
Java, Java SDK, JDK
What specifically does the release of Java need to be, there seem to be different types, such as: Runtime engine (JRE), Development kit (SDK)?
To clarify, it is the JDK (formerly Java SDK) version 1.5.0_17 that is required.
It can be down-loaded from the Sun Developer Network website with the link listed below.
Alternately, you can go to Java download site, which is also listed below:
1) Click on "Previous Releases"
2) At bottom, Click on "Archived Releases" (you can find almost all previous releases here)
3) Look for JDK/JRE - 5.0
4) Choose "5.0 Update 17" and Click go button.
5) and it will redirect the page to download 1.5.0_17
Please note: JRE contains only runtime for Java. JDK contains JRE and Java compiler. Prospect requires JDK to run because JBoss requires JDK.
