How does a developer go about getting Java Development Kit, Java Runtime Environment, and Java Virtual Machine support for all platforms in a complex hetergeneous enterprise environment? The JRE download site at Sun reveals options for Solaris and Windows only.
Re: OS/390 - the Java environment can be D/L from IBM. Try google to search for correct location. You may need an IBM 'customer number'. I'm pretty sure it has to be SMP/E installed, so you will need the services of an OS/390 systems programmer. I have not installed it, but used it quite a bit. Works fine. (No GUI of course).

Huh. Just really looked at the topic. I suspect you mean S/390 Linux (Red Hat, Suse, ... whatever flavor), not OS/390 Linux (no such a thing). OS/390 Unix Systems Services and Linux running on a S/390 platform are certainly different. Java programs under OS/390 can run in batch, TSO, and of course USS. CICS and IMS have some support for the language I think, but am not tuned up on the details. I'll ask a guy at work about Java on Linux for the 390's .... get back to you in a couple of days. Still, .... your IBM sales rep. is a good place to start. He/she can always put you in contact with tech. folks. Regards, Guy
Java on HP-UX is supported by... HP, naturally. (Henceforth to be known as "Hewlett Paqard".) Go to www.hp.com and search for "java" - I think sdk 1.3.1 is the latest available. [This message has been edited by Jim Yingst (edited September 07, 2001).]

Be reasonable. You can't destroy everything. Where would you sit? How would you read a tiny ad?
