The Intel Itanium is a completely different kind of microprocessor than the Intel x86 (which is the normal kind of processors that you find in PCs).

An Itanium processor has a completely different instruction set than an x86 processor, and cannot normally run x86 software.

So, you cannot install 32-bit Java 1.4 for x86 processors on an Itanium machine. You need a Java version specifically for the Itanium processor and the operating system that runs on that server.

As Jesper said, you can't to it. There were rumours of Intel putting a small x86 processor in the Itanium for backwards compatibility, but I don't think they did.

Where did you get a server with an Itanium? Are they still even being sold? The Itanium was designed based on the theory of VLIW (very long instruction word) that was popular in the early 1990s. It didn't work out as the theory hoped.

These days, its far easier to get performance with a quad AMD or Intel 64 bit processor.

There is a 1.4.2 JDK for Itanium (Linux and Windows) - you will have to download and install that.

There is also a JDK 6u10 version available for Itanium (Linux and Windows) that you can download from http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/ea.jsp . It is currently a release candidate.

But there's not a 32-bit JDK for the Itanium. As far as I know, the Itanium is a 64-bit only processor.

Yes, the Itanium JVMs are all 64-bit, but if you want to run Java on Itanium, then that is what you are stuck with.
