I already have some version installed on the machine, 1.7 and 1.6.

Now I have the need to install version 1.5, but when I try to install an error occurs, speaking to uninstall the versions that I have the Java (JDK).

I have no chance because I have other applications using these versions, is there any possibility to do this without uninstalling these versions I already have ?

Thank in advance !

Do you need the "pure" JDK or the public part too?

Have you worked out where to download those old versions? Try here. Install it the same way you would install any other Java® installation. You will want the JDK rather than the JRE. I have not come across problems with newer versions blocking installation of older versions. Has anybody else had such problems?
Is the problem to do with your PATH? When you open the command line/terminal reset your PATH
export PATH=/xzy/java/jdk1.5.0_22/bin:$PATH or similar for *nix, or
set PATH="C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_22\bin";%PATH% for Windows, or something rather like that.

Does that mean you got it to work? Well done and “you're welcome”.
 
I wish to win the lottery. I wish for a lovely piece of pie. And I wish for a tiny ad:
