[Request] Premium Java Runtimes installers

Post by prabocor rajasa » Tue Nov 13, 2018 8:47 pm

I have found on the net the following:
jre-1_5_0_85-windows-i586-p.exe (final EOL)

Need these updates:
j2sdkfb-1_4_2_35-windows-i586-p.exe (or final EOL u42, which also contain jre)
jre-6u211-windows-i586.exe (final EOL)

reason for multiple versions is similar to .NET

EOL info:
https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java ... 42120.html
https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java ... 37139.html
https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java ... 56328.html

Since I cant find those, I might tell what I found so far, as alternative...

IBM which probably biggest Java backer after its creator does maintain in some way LTS-like Java SDK(which also contain JRE... for windows. It never directly available as standalone installer, rather as part of other product such Websphere and they maintain it a little longer than Oracle. This Java delivered as full patch that can be tracked by its APAR (ala Microsoft KB), however to download a free registration login required.

To recap:

Java 1.3 : Oracle (actually Sun) has final EOL for windows dubbed "vintage" edition https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java ... 19413.html

Java 1.4 from IBM: APAR PI17128

Java 5 installer file: jre-1_5_0_85-windows-i586-p.exe can be found with google

Java 6 from IBM which just recently retired, there is two flavor :
R0 : APAR PH04264
R1 : APAR PH04261

Java 7 is still maintained by both company

While Java 8 (the final Java for XP) is still publicly supported till U211 (together when Posready reach EOL, how nice!).There is freely available LTS version from OpenJDK 8 https://github.com/AdoptOpenJDK/openjdk ... /releases/
I'm not sure if they will maintain releases after U211.
