Dear All,

I wish to know whether I can install Java 5,develop applications and run the applications using all features of java 5 on my system.
System configuration is as given below:

OS : Red Hat Linux 7.2
kernal : 2.4.7-10
libc : libc-2.2.4.so
DeskTop : Gnome 1.4

Assume that hardware configuration is all right.

I would like to know the recommanded software and hardware configuration for
the same.

Thanks in advance.

The JDK 5 Documentation has a list of supported configurations and Red Hat 7.2 is not one of them. Of course, Red Hat 7.2 is long past end-of-life so it's no wonder they don't support it.

To my observation, companies are very defensive, when claiming compatibility with linux.
If possible, I would download a current jdk-1.5 tarball, and give it a try.
