I need to install Java 1.5 on a Sun-Solaris machine. However I havent worked on Solaris before. Nevertheless, I followed a few steps given on the website.

I have downloaded and installed the JAVA version.

$java -version
java version "1.5.0_09"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_09-b03)
Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 1.5.0_09-b03, mixed mode)

$whence java
/wls_domains/hub05/hub05dA/JAVA_1.5/SUNWj5rt/reloc/jdk/instances/jdk1.5.0/jre/bin/java

$whence javac
/wls_domains/hub05/hub05dA/JAVA_1.5/SUNWj5dev/reloc/jdk/instances/jdk1.5.0/bin/javac

$echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/wls_domains/hub05/hub05dA/JAVA_1.5/SUNWj5rt/reloc/jdk/instances/jdk1.5.0/jre/lib/sparc:/usr/dt/lib:/usr/openwin/lib

$cd /wls_domains/hub05/hub05dA/JAVA_1.5/SUNWj5rt/reloc/jdk/instances/jdk1.5.0/jre/lib/sparc
$ls -l libjava.so
-rwxrw-r-- 1 hub05dA hub05d 154884 Oct 12 11:32 libjava.so

But when trying to run javac

$javac -verbose test.java
Error: could not find libjava.so
Error: could not find Java 2 Runtime Environment.


Can you please guide me as to what I need to do so that javac works properly ?

What is your PATH? It's possible that the default JDK that is installed with Solaris is before the directory containing the JDK you are using.
