Hi ranchers,
Im back after a long time...well have a clarification.

Could you tell me the steps for JDK 1.7 installation .
I have been to website but finding it difficult to proceed for installation for jdk 1.7 kit
My requirement :
OS : Windows XP.

Please note:
This list offers files for different platforms - please be sure to select the proper file(s) for your platform. Carefully review the files listed below to select the ones you want, then click the link(s) to download.

The DEBUG builds have not been run through ANY quality procedures, and are only provided as a potential way to track down a bug in the more official product bits. There is no guarantee that the debug builds will work.

If you choose to download and install self-extracting JRE or DEBUG Jar bundles then you need to change the file permission to be executable in the bin directory after the installation.

For JRE bundle:

cd <INSTALL_DIR>/jre1.7.0/bin
chmod +x *
For DEBUG bundle:

cd <INSTALL_DIR>/jdk1.7.0/fastdebug/bin
chmod +x *
cd <INSTALL_DIR>/jdk1.7.0/fastdebug/jre1.7.0/bin
chmod +x *
Windows Platform
Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language JDK file
jdk-7-ea-bin-b59-windows-i586-14_may_2009.exe, 56.85 MB ( MD5_Checksum)

Windows self-extracting JRE Jar file
jre-7-ea-bin-b59-windows-i586-14_may_2009.jar, 32.23 MB ( MD5_Checksum )

Windows self-extracting DEBUG Jar file
jdk-7-ea-bin-b59-windows-i586-debug-14_may_2009.jar, 96.22 MB (MD5_Checksum)

Please advice on this.

Those instructions are for Unix systems. It seems to me that for Windows all you need to do is run the .exe / .jar file.
