I am having problems with my JDK 1.5 install. I have downloaded the appropriate file and run the install and the install runs without a hitch. However, it appears as though I have the JRE only as I am missing tools such as javac.exe and javadoc.exe.
The file I download from the Sun site is called jdk-1_5_0-windows-i586.exe. After the install, I check the README.txt file and it makes reference to the JRE (what!!??). I have downloaded the file twice and installed twice all to no avail.
Has anyone experienced this scenario with the installation of JDK 1.5? This is a tad embarassing as I have downloaded many versions of the JDK over the past 3 years or so with no problem.
My download was jdk-1_5_0-windows-i586.exe at just under 45 meg. During the install I had a choice to install JDK, JRE or both. Did you see that choice? The default install went to c:\program files\Java\jdk1.5.0. See if you got the directory.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
