JDK Installation Process!!! Very Easy
Before discussing about the Jdk installation process let us first understand little bit about what is JDK. Don’t be afraid I will not converse about technical matters here just brief introduction and what it really does.
JDK stands for Java Development Kit, is a software development environment used for developing Java applications and applets. It comprises of Java Runtime Environment (JRE), an interpreter/loader (java), a compiler (javac), an archiver (jar), a documentation generator (javadoc) and other tools needed in Java development.
Here you should know that you can use JRE to run java application and applets but to develop Java applications and applets as well as run them, the JDK is needed. That’s it for now we have discussed lot about JDK to proceed for installation.
To install JDK we have to download it. You just follow the steps,
Navigate to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html and choose jdk as I shown in green color box.
Next click on the Accept license Agreement radio button.
And then choose required jdk version.
New window will open that will ask you to save the file, click on the save file button.
Now go to your download folder and double click on the downloaded jdk to start installation process.
Windows installer will prepare the system to install.
New window will appear, click next.
Keep the default directory setting and click next.
New window appears to show installation status.
Custom setup window will appear then click next.
Hurrah…. now the setup process takes off…..hahaha….
New window appears, that’s it, click the close button, your installation process of jdk completed.
Next we will install NetBeans IDE.
