I don't see anything about a -j option for installation. Here's the documentation for installing the JDK silently if that's what you're after. The proper way to silently install is the "\s" switch, instead of -j. If you want to specify where to install, use "jdk.exe /s /INSTALLDIRPUBJRE=C:\test\" where C:\test\ is the directory you choose.

in my system the setup is unable to find the java run time environment...
that's why i've used the -j option to spot the jre for the setup...

Installing the JDK includes the installation of the JRE. You don't need Java to install Java, that wouldn't make any sense. Did you try just double clicking the .exe file instead of running it from the command prompt? That's usually the best method of installation unless you need other specialized options such as silent installation.

at first i strted with just double clicking the setup...
then it throwed me an error stating that, need java 2 runtime environment..
so i've gone for the jre installation in my system...
after that when i tried to double click on the setup it said its unable to find the run time environment..
then i went for this -j option.

Sorry for the late reply. I finally had a chance to test out that package you're trying to install, and I had the same problems you ran into. I was able to resolve the problem by first downloading and installing the standard JDK (which includes the JRE), and then I was able to install the JDK EE package by just double clicking it (I didn't have to run anything from the command prompt). The JDK EE installation found the JRE automatically and opened a nice GUI installer as expected. Let me know if that helps!
