This week's book giveaway is in the Java in General forum. We're giving away four copies of Beginning Java 17 Fundamentals: Object-Oriented Programming in Java 17 and have ishori Sharan & Adam L Davis on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm setting up Java EE on my Ubuntu system. I've downloaded the most recent setup for "Java EE SDK with Java 6 JDK", which is java_ee_sdk_6u2_jdk-linux.sh.
When trying to run the .sh file, it tells me that I need to have Java 6 installed because it needs access to the jar command (from the JDK). I thought the JDK 6 was included in the bundle . . . but I then need to download it separately so I can install the file that it's bundled in? Seems like a catch 22.
I mean, I'll do it, but it seems silly bundle the JDK 6 with Java EE if you have to download JDK 6 separately to run it.
