Probably not. You need the J2SE, not the J2EE. You can download the J2Se here:
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index_jdk5.jsp (JDK 5.0 Update 11)
It's the third download button.

After you have downloaded it, try doing this tutorial:
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/getStarted/cupojava/win32.html (assuming you're on Windows)
Although the tutorial mentions JDK 6, you can also do it with JDK 5 installed.

Good luck.

Hi,

Thanks for your information. As per your url, I have gone to jdk5.0 update 11 download,

it is having two sections for windows

Sections :

1/ Windows Platform - J2SE(TM) Development Kit 5.0 Update 11
2/ Windows x64 Platform - J2SE(TM) Development Kit 5.0 Update 11

I belive, I have to go section 1 ( my pc is on xp ). if correct in section there are two files for download . I have to choose "windows online installation"

Kindly guide me.

best regards
pjp

If you had Windows64 you would know about it. Assume you are on 32 (which means the processor processes 32 bits at a time).
  • Check the licence agreement
  • Download the "offline" version and put it in your "download" folder or wherever else you keep downloads.
  • Double-click the jdk file
  • Follow the instructions in this website.Remember what you called the folder you put the Java files in. Note particularly no 4 about setting the PATH permanently. You have to follow those instructions to the letter. Create yourself a folder for keeping Java programs in. Then run the Hello World program described here. The only real use for a Helloworld program is that it proves your installation is working.
