[Request] - A 6-in-1 Java installer/addon

Post by bphlpt » Sat Apr 07, 2012 3:25 pm

I have used and recommended Kel's Java installers for a long time now. But I've learned recently, through shiner, that gora has expanded on Kel's work and made 4-in-1 and 6-in-1 dual-arch Java installers/addons, combining Java 6, 7 and 8, carrying on in the tradition of Kel's wonderful installers. They are currently only available over at OSZone.net, and only in Russian, at least the user interaction part is in Russian. I would like to request that gora, or Kel if he would prefer since he "started" these Java installers in their current form, make an English version of the 4-in-1 and 6-in-1 releases and post them here at RyanVM.net, preferably NOT password protected, so that we can both learn from a master of the craft and so that we can adjust and adapt them to our individual needs if necessary. Of course if it is felt that PW protection is required then I can respect that. I would very much appreciate it.

A script from gora or Onepiece to allow us to build our own AIO would be icing on the cake.


EDIT: I asked Kel if he would like to make this installer. His response:
Thank you SO much for the consideration!
I have no issue with one of you guys making a AIO, I really have very little interest in making one myself.

So please by all means use my methodology as much as you can to further the java installer cause!
So gora, how about it?

Cheers and Regards

Rethink here:

I would be willing to build\host and upkeep it...

BUT!

I would need help with the first, basic script!

Just post it here and I will do the rest.

I didn't know anything about Java 8 being available in any form either until I saw gora's addon. As to why install multiple versions of Java, as I posted in Kel's thread:
I seem to remember there being an issue with OpenOffice not liking the latest Jave, but I can't put my finger on the proof of that at the moment. One thought would be that as long as the latest official version of Java listed here - http://www.java.com/ - is still Java6, that implies that Java7 is still Beta so it might be appropriate to have a side by side installation. That's the approach I'm taking and what I recommend when asked.
That would also be my thought regarding Jave 8, which I assume is alpha. As long as they are able to be installed, and uninstalled, separately I don't see the harm. When Java 7 goes "official", I would uninstall Java 6. I know this is not necessarily the approach that others might choose, dumpydooby among them, but it has not caused me any problems so far.

Cheers and Regards

@bphlpt

Jave 8 is at PREVIEW (build 33) stage which is close to release.

confuses me as well as to why there will be 3 JRE...6,7,8 !
you would think that 7 replaced 6 and 8 would replace 6 & 7.
i guess it's like dotNet :)

Excuse my bad English. My native language is Russian.

bphlpt invited me to read this thread. I have read but not understood. What should I do?!

Give references to my addons? Please:
http://gora.7zsfx.info/addons/Java_678_ ... 7_15-20.7z
http://gora.7zsfx.info/addons/Java_7_8_ ... 7_15-18.7z
http://gora.7zsfx.info/addons/Java_6_7_ ... 8_13-00.7z

Give a link to my Maker Java? I can do it, but it creates addons (silent installers) standard oszone.net.

Transform my Maker Java for the English language?

Make my Maker Java multilingual (English Russian) for the production of multilingual SFX?

Refine the problem!

@Kel?

Since you asked for initial help, what would you like? For gora to provide an English version of his addons? gora's maker script? To work with Escorpiom? To utilize Onepiece's script in some way? Everyone seems to be on board, so with you in command, since you were the inspiration for this and you wish to handle the build\host and upkeep, where should we go from here?

Cheers and Regards

I mainly need suggestions and help with the config file.

The gui part is what I really need help with putting all of the runprogram sections is easy.

Seems to me gora would like to offer a multi-lingual version though so lets see if he is willing to.

Although I do destest password protection, so if that is what gora has his as I would rather make our own for here...

I modified my Maker Java to create two-section (two languages) configs

Here are the configs of my Maker Java

When you run SFX on a Russian UI OS will be a Russian interface SFX. On any other OS will be the English interface

OK looked at the scripts. Hey gora? Do you have to include special java installers for russian? Do you even want me to keep that part for the pack I am building here?

I don't see why anyone would need java 8 in 2012. See here...
That leads us to a
target release date in September 2013.

Excuse my bad English.
Maybe I and my "friend" (Google Translate) did not understand you.
1 I have my own addons for Russian users.
2 I have my own a Maker Java for this addons.
3 I do what I do not want from you. I have everything :)
4 What do you want from me?

Gora = I simply was doing my best to respect your script and contribution.

I am going to rely heavily on your script and was making sure your wants and wishes were respected....

ОК.
This script is my Maker Java. Maybe it will be interesting for you. Comments in the script, I tried to translate to English.
