Downloading and installing Java SE 1.6 Update 2

This section describes a tutorial example on how to install Java SE (JDK) 1.6 Update 2.

To use Xerces2 Java Parser, you need to have a copy of JDK (Java Development Kit) installed on your machine. The latest version of JDK is JDK 6u2 (Java(TM) SE Development Kit 6 Update 2), which is also called Java SE 6 (Java Standard Edition 6). Here is what I did to download and install JDK 6u2 on my local machine.

  • Open the Java SE Download page with this URL: http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/.
  • Click the download button next to "JDK 6u2". You will see a new page with a list of different download files of JDK 6u2.
  • Locate the "Windows Platform - Java(TM) SE Development Kit 6 Update 2" section.
  • Click the hyper link of "Windows Offline Installation (build 06), Multi-language", which links to jdk-6u2-windows-i586-p.exe with size of 65.57 MB.
  • Save jdk-6u2-windows-i586-p.exe to a temporary directory.
  • Double-click on jdk-6u2-windows-i586-p.exe to start the installation wizard.
  • The installation wizard will guide you to finish the installation.

To test the installation, open a command window to try the java command. If you are getting the following output, your installation was ok:

C:\>\progra~1\java\jdk1.6.0_02\bin\java -version
java version "1.6.0_02"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_02-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_02-b06, mixed mode,
