Ok, I installed java_ee_sdk-5_02-linux.bin from the java.sun.com download page. I know where it installed to...bin path = /opt/SDK/jdk/bin...
The problem comes when I try to install java-tools-bundle-linux.sh...I need to know how to specify where the JRE is located...It gives me the following error message...
No compatible Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) was found on this system. The NetBeans(TM) 5.5 Preview installer requires at least JRE version 5.0. Download and install a compatible JRE and try again or restart the installer using the -is:javahome command line parameter to specify the location of the JRE.
I've tried several ways of doing this, all to no avail. Can someone point me in the right direction?? Do I even have the right path (where the java and javac files are located)??

Did you really mean to install j2ee, or do you want the "standard" (J2SE) Java development kit?
If you want the latter, just:
1. go to http://java.sun.com, downloads 2. Download whatever version you prefer (EXAMPLE: jdk-6-nb-5_5-linux.bin) 3. Copy it to your system and install it: EXAMPLE: chmod +rx jdk-6-nb-5_5-linux.bin ./jdk-6-nb-5_5-linux.bin <= THIS SHOULD INCLUDE ALL OF THE JRE, THE JDK, AND THE NETBEANS IDE
If you want the former, you *still* need to download a JRE (as in the instructions above) ... but you should also adjust/set the following two environment variables: $PATH ... and ... $JAVA_HOME
'hope that helps .. PSM
PS: One common "gotcha" is that Linux might have Gnu Java ("gjc") somewhere in the path. Although Gnu Java and Sun Java can co-exist on the same host ... it can also complicate things. Feel free to simply delete gjc if you're not using it. [ December 25, 2006: Message edited by: Paul Santa Maria ]
is my full path, and even though FC6 did install some other version of JAVA, I don't think it's actually running or in the path.

Well, I can still create/run Java programs with what I've got...I mainly wanted to download the tools bundle because it comes with the API docs...or so I thought...but it's working now, and if I really need to figure something out I can always do it on my pc...so thanks to those who posted.
This might be old and I'm not sure if it will help (I run openSuse) but since you are echoing the JAVA_HOME variable and it's coming out blank I'm guessing you haven't exported it. In order for you to use a variable in Linux you have to export it. You can try it in the console like so:
JAVA_HOME=whaterever it is export JAVA_HOME PATH=$JAVA_HOME:$PATH export PATH
Then try whatever it is you were going to try. If it works you just have to do that in your profile. Also, does FC6 have Java in the package management system (YUM?)? I'd be surprised if it doesn't. If it doesn't, it definitely will soon now that Java has gone all Open Source on us
Teaching yourself anything is always the cheapest way, but it definitely takes a lot of time and effort.<br /> <br />Thank you javaranch <a href="http://"http://faq.javaranch.com/view?HowToAskQuestionsOnJavaRanch"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Learn How to Ask Your Question</a> and be nice
