Hello all,

I have downloaded the IBM JAVA SDK from ibm's site. This is Java5.sdk after untarring the file.

Can anyone tell me how to extract this file?

Thanks,
Guru

Why didn't you get the Java sdk from Sun's web site.

Usually you install Java's SDK, not really extracting file's from a zip like file.

Well, it's rumored that some people use an OS other than Windows, Solaris, or Linux, in which case they may have no use for Sun's JDKs. IBM makes JDKs for AIX (duh) and Linux - for the latter, I suppose Linux users can choose whether they prefer Sun's stuff or IBM's.

Anyway, to the original question: aren't there instructions available at the same place you got the download? IBM's site has links to user manauals which include a section on installation. Of course you need to specify what OS you're using. Here are links for AIX and Linux users.

You should be downloading the SDK from Sun's website. The SDK is an installer. You need not extract anything. I don't know about IBM's SDK.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
