I would like to just download a jdk and not do an install shield. My machine already has JRE 1.6.0_20-b02 installed.

How can I just get the JDK without an install. I just want to dump the jdk in my java folder and change the environmental variables & set it up myself. Is there any way to do this?

If the answer is no you must run the install shield what is the best way to go about doing this I dont want 2 jre's installed.

I have the JDK from 1.5 I could just dump into place but I prefer a 1.6 that matches my current JRE without all the install shield stuff.

thanks,
earl

Seriously, an installer is going to be a *lot* less trouble. I believe it will even give you the option whether to install a JRE or not. Even if it doesn't, and if it doesn't just update the existing JRE, you can always just uninstall the old JRE. You're making a big problem for yourself.

Didnt seem a prob with 1.5 JDK just drop the folder in and change the environmental variables. Boom ready to roll. OK will go to a install shield.

Going here http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk6-jsp-136632.html then. Old men get set in there ways

I second Stephan's comments. What exactly is the reasoning behind this E Robb? What is the problem or goal?

Set in my ways used to doing it another way. Im in the install shield now and you can choose not to install the JRE and just install the JDK.

Its cool thanks for your help. Maybe I should take my head out of the sand more than every two years.
