Where is the download page that used to be at Sun

Hi,

Where is the download page that used to be at sun.com where there were many apis/technologies dropdowns and you could choose newer or older downloads of JDKs, JREs, JINIs and the likes. And also how can we access the archive pages that were used to be at sun.com?

Thanks in advance,

Maki Jav

http://www.oracle.com/java

Oracle doesn't have the same exact pages that Sun had anymore, but you can find what you need to know there.

If you're specifically looking for older versions of Java, go to Java SE, Downloads, Previous Releases.

Thank you very much, but I would say that Sun was way better in organising things. And we all loved Sun...

Is our love dead?

Oracle's web presence is ugly, no doubt about that.

over this one

I like the new Javadoc style. The old style is so... 1995!

Sun's site was no better organized. It just wasn't quite as ugly.
