What are the latest versions in Java

Todo list online

  • (Recommended) Click the Big Free Java Download button on the main site of the website.

    Clicking the Free Java Download button will get all of the Java you need on most computers.

    If you are using Mac OS X 10. 6 or earlier (or if you are using OS X 10. 7 and have not upgraded to OS X 10. 7. 3 or later), click the Free Java Download button which opens a "Sorry, Charlie! ‚ÄĚPage that tells you to download Java direct from Apple. Follow the instructions on this page to install Java on your computer.

  • (Optional) Follow the Do I Have Java? Shortcut.

    If you follow this link, the web browser will search the computer for Java installations. You should have Java 6 (aka Java 1.6) or higher (Java 7, Java 8 or whatever). If your version of Java is earlier than Java 6 (or if the scan cannot find Java on your computer), click one of the download buttons on the Java website.

  • (Optional) Select from the Java versions.

    When you click the All Java Downloads link on the Java website, you can choose between different versions of Java - 32-bit and 64-bit versions for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris computers.

    This alternative is useful to override the default download button for Free Java Download. For example, you want the 64-bit version of Java even though the free Java download button gives you the 32-bit version. Later, you can visit the Java website with a Windows computer to download Java for your Macintosh.

  • (Optional) Clean your computer except for the latest version of Java.

    On the Java website, the "Remove Older Versions" link promises to clean up any Java data that you have collected over time. This Remove Older Versions step is optional.

    Visit the Remove Older Versions link if you're having issues that you suspect are Java-related. But don't worry about an impending disaster by not following the Remove previous versions link.
