I have installed MySql, Apache 2.2 PHP on my laptop, I enjoyed using natbeans 6.8 as it's a new laptop I thought I'll get the latest netbeans as my IDE for php, html, jscript, css.
I downloaded 7.0.1 ran it and was told JAVA SE Development kit was not not found on this computer .
JDK 6 is required for installing the netbeans IDE. Make sure that the JDK is properly installed and run installer again. You can specify valid JDK location using --javahome installer argument.
To download the JDK, visit http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads
I went to the website specified downloaded what I concluded was the JDK 6 download and ran it, a whole lot of things came up saying Glassfish has been installed I got a summary report and access to the logs and thought cracked it! ran netbeans installer and was told that jdk 6 is required and I, as sure as the moon is made of blue cheese I don't have it!
If I had unlimited time I would dearly love to learn lots of new technologies, but sadly I don't have that time. 6.8 netbeans was an absolute dream one download one installation go! Sadly 7.0.1 is not proving so.
Can anybody help with the next steps so I can get to work again please?
I thank you in advance of thinking about looking at this and walking away ;-)
I have enjoyed such help and support from this website thank you one and all.
