Abstract

This page provides information about jdk installations on Fedora.

This page will discuss mainly about Open JDK and Oracle JDK, how to install them, test and configure them on Fedora.

What is JDK

JDK or Java Development Kit is an implementation of Java Environment, Standard Edition and is required for Java development purposes.

OpenJDK and project IcedTea

OpenJDK (Open Java Development Kit) is a free and open source implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE). It is the result of an effort Sun Microsystems began in 2006. The implementation is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL) with a linking exception. Were it not for the GPL linking exception, components that linked to the Java class library would be subject to the terms of the GPL license. OpenJDK is the official Java SE 7 reference implementation. Fedora has shipped OpenJDK as default JRE implementation. It's based on Sun Microsystem's/Oracle's JavaOne open source release and complemented by Red Hat's IcedTea project that implements the missing third party components that Sun/Oracle could not release under free License.

OpenJDK's java.library.path, shared librarary paths for i386 are:

/usr/lib
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.?.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0.x86_64/jre/lib/

and for x86_64:

/usr/lib64
/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.?.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0.x86_64/jre/lib/amd64/

The JDK has as its primary components a collection of programming tools, including:

The old deployment launcher, jre, no longer comes with Sun JDK, and instead it has been replaced by this new java loader. javac – the Java compiler, which converts source code into Java bytecode javadoc – the documentation generator, which automatically generates documentation from source code comments jar – the archiver, which packages related class libraries into a single JAR file.

It accepts an XML schema and generates Java classes. Experimental tools may not be available in future versions of the JDK.

The JDK also comes with a complete Java Runtime Environment, usually called a private runtime, due to the fact that it is separated from the "regular" JRE and has extra contents. It consists of a Java Virtual Machine and all of the class libraries present in the production environment, as well as additional libraries only useful to developers, such as the internationalization libraries and the IDL libraries.

Copies of the JDK also include a wide selection of example programs demonstrating the use of almost all portions of the Java API. OpenJDK package name on Fedora is java-1.?.0-openjdk.
