Java: need help installing

I need to install Java Stanard 5.0 or 1.5 or Tiger (all same kind) but all I see is Java Standard 6.0 and stuff. Java 1.5 needs an API -does Java 6.0 need the same one or is it already installed?

Please Help,
<(~worldwaffle~)>

Welcome to JavaRanch!

On Sun's Java SE download page, there's a small link for Previous Releases, where you will find Java 5.0.

You will see a number of options, and you probably want JDK 5.0 Update 17 (no EE and no NetBeans). The JDK (Java Development Kit) includes the API classes.

Be sure to carefully follow the installation instructions for your operating system -- especially the part about updating your PATH variable.

Post back if you have any problems.

Java 6 is back-compatible with Java 5, so you should be fine.

You don't "open" Java. The tools in the JDK are invoked from the command line. See this Hello World Tutorial for illustrations (on Windows).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
