I successfully installed the JDK1.4.0 self-extracting binary into my Solaris 8 system. I can compile Java code, can run tomcat very well. But the problem is when I use pkginfo|grep 'SUNWj', the JDK1.4.0 packages do not show up. Why? And does this matter?

Hi Gene - Your download probably just extracted a tar.gz (or similar) file, and ran a 'standard' *nix install from that.
That is certainly what happened on my RH Linux box. The package manager (rpm) did not get involved, and so knows nothing of the code.
I don't think it matters as long as you know: it is installed; what directories it is in (so you can rm -rf if necessary); and that it works.
Regards, Guy
