install java6 on AIX..

Hi,

I have been asked to install java6 64 bits on AIX 6.,1 and 7.1. I have searched and java6 in only on 32 bits on AIX DVDs... Also, I found a lot of information about this package but not sure which java package I need to download.

Can you help me to install the right package?

Thanks.

JRE is shipped with AIX and is licensed along with AIX (in a way).

Basically JRE is available on Fix Central, but for some ugly reason you can only get JAVA RE 7 at this moment.
Maybe you're lucky and can find a place on Fix Central or developerworks to download JRE 6.
I couldn't find any, though.

SDK contains the full JRE, so if there's indeed no Java 6 on your DVDs you can always go with the SDK, no problem.

Hi,

Do you mean the SDK?

Java 6 64bit SDK (contains the JRE runtime code) is here:

https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/reg/download.do?source=dka&S_PKG=aix64j6b&S_TACT=105AGX05&S_CMP=JDK&lang=en_US&cp=UTF-8&dlmethod=http

Download "Base SDK" and, if required, the "Demos" (samples).

You'll need an IBM license!

If the above link doesn't work you can also start here:

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/aix/service.html

Click "Java SE Version 6" > "64 bit Download now" then procees with the login and license agreement stuff. After clicking "Confirm" choose your download method and continue as desribed above.

Good luck!
