Installing Java

  1. Download the latest SDK or JRE from http://java.sun.com/j2se/downloads.html. If you plan to do java development or to build jEdit from source, get the SDK, otherwise get the JRE. There is no reason to get both.
  2. Extract the file you downloaded
  3. Set your environment variables?
    • Set JAVA_HOME to the main java install directory (ex: C:\j2sdk1.4.1 )
    • add $JAVA_HOME/bin to your PATH
    • add $JAVA_HOME/lib to your CLASSPATH
