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.

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!

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.
