I currently have J2SE JDK 1.4.2_03 on my IBM Laptop running XP Professional. How do I upgrade to J2SE JDK 1.4.2_08?

Thank you. tschmiedeke@yahoo.com

Short answer: Install it. Done.

However, any number of things may have the path to the old version hardcoded. Look in the Properties of any IDE you use. Also look in your environment variables. Specifically check your PATH and possibly JAVA_HOME and CLASSPATH. If any of those mention the old path, update them to the new.

But for the most part, there's no big upgrade effort.

AFAIK, Sun does not package upgrades per se. You have to completley reinstall a new version in order to perform an upgrade.
