Correct Java SDK for Prospect Core 8.0.7

Technote (FAQ)


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

However, the Sun/Java website indicates the following when attempting to request 1.5 version 17. (32-bit) (64-bit)

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.
