I have j2sdk1.4.2_04 installed on my linux machine.   Now, I need to install j2re1.4.2_03 since I need access to some of their files for a certain reason.   After I'm done, I then want to uninstall j2re1.4.2_03 since I won't be needing it anymore.   I was wondering if there's any proper way to uninstall such a program in linux, and if there is, could anyone tell me how?   Thanks.

That depends on how you installed the current copy and where it is installed. If you used an RPM for the install you can remove it with 'rpm -e j2sdk1.4.2_04'. If the install was done from a tarball or similar simply removing the directory containing the JDK will suffice.

Note that when using a tarball install it is possible to have more than one version of the JDK installed. I typically place the JDK in /opt/j2sdk-1.4.2-04 and create a symlink from there to /usr/java. I can place a different version in /opt/j2sdk-1.4.2-03, change the symlink and use the earlier version.
