Hi, I want to download latest version of Java API. I want to download API only. I have JRE and JAVA SDK. I tried my best to get API alone, but failed. Can any one suggest me, how to download JAVA API alone. Thanx, Jyothi.
(1)First go here http://java.sun.com/Download6 (2)Then select on left under "Documentation" "-APIs" (3)Now in main frame of the page you probably want "Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SETM) - J2SE 1.4.0 API Specification"

Hi Dirk Schreckmann, I changed my display name. And Elouise Kivineva, I could see Java API, but not able to download it. I want to download it, any possibility. Thanks for your suggestion. Jyothi Alluru
Can any one suggest me, how to download JAVA API alone. I don't think that you can just download the API - it's packaged with the Java SDK. Do you mean the API documentation, as Valentin has suggested? Why do you want to download the Java API alone? What are you trying to accomplish?
Hi Dirk, I have SDK installed in my system, but I dont have API. Moreover I dont have Internet connection. So if I got API alone I can copy into my floppy in zip format, later install into my system.

Is it an older version of Sun's Java SDK that you have and you're hoping to be able to use the newer Java libraries? I don't know how much success you'll have at such an adventure. The SDK is a rather small part of the entire Java SDK with API that Sun provides. The standard library files in my installation are 31.3MB (the main file rt.jar alone is 22MB). Keep in mind that these libraries are mostly in jar files - which are already compressed. It would not be an exciting adventure to try and split that across multiple floppies in order to transfer them from where you can download to your computer. The official Java SDK 1.4.0_01 download from Sun is about 35MB. This is only slightly larger than the library files alone. More importantly, in order to run programs created with this SDK, your computer would need to have the proper JRE installed. The JRE includes lots of machine specific aspects (libraries written in C), that need to be properly installed and configured. The JRE is included with the 35MB Java SDK installation file. If I were you, I'd get the official and entire Java SDK installation file. The libraries are only slightly smaller and I doubt you'd have much success trying to make use out of them seperated from the proper SDK installation. Perhaps somebody you know has a CD burner (zip drive, or other large capacity removable media drive that you might be able to borrow) and an internet connection and could download and copy the files onto disk for you. Good Luck.
Of course, if you actually mean that you're after the API Documentation, then as suggested, follow the link provided by Val and good luck. The download is a single, compressed, 29.8MB file. When installed, it's about 150MB. Again, I'd search for a friend with a cd burner.
