Remove obsolete Solaris versions

Experts,

     How do I remove the following old versions from a Solaris 8 OS?
1) 2004-B-0015 Sun Java Runtime 1.4.2.04
2) native-threads /java 1.3.1.01
3) 2008-B-0052 Sun Java JDK/JRE

Thanks, MIssyMadi

I'm not sure how the past admin installed the Java versions. Does that matter on how they are deleted in Solaris 8?

well, I am not familiar with java installation on Solaris, but in general if it was installed as a package then it can be removed with pkgrm command. From my experience with java on windows new version replaces files, etc and no need to delete old versions.

Please see the link below, which talk about removing older versions:
