Hi all,

I have downloaded and install Java version 7 and am about to start working with the Hybris ecommerce platform.

The version of Hybris we are going to use requires that we use Java 6, as the existing developers have been using Java 6.

The link on the oracle website though lists Java EE 6 + JDK 7 - which is somewhat confusing.

Is the JDK 7 essentially Java 7 ?

I have downloaded this 'so called' Java 6 but can clearly see a JDK7 folder after the install and am unsure as to whether i am using Java 6.

I know i can run java -verision from the command line - but that display 1.7.0x which confuses me even more.

Any light shedded on this for clarity will really help ?


Please no replies though unless you are absolutely sure - i can't stand any more confusion....

Steve

JDK 7 = Java 7 = Java 1.7.

JEE 6 is the enterprise edition. It is completely separate and does not contain a JDK. Most people use Java 6 or Java 7 with JEE 6.

Hi Jeanne,

To downgrade to Java 6, could you let me know if this is enough ?

1. Download Java 6 SE
2. Install above
3. Change %JAVA_HOME% to point to above install folder
4. I already have downloaded Java EE - so when needed reference .jar files in Java EE download folder

Thanks
Steve

You'll also want to update your %PATH% to point to Java 6.

May not be required if in case %JAVA_HOME% is used in %PATH%.
