     It's likely just me. But on one of three BSD servers I have
     java (linux) working happily with mozilla. The other two may
     have upgrade/dependency probledms... or else gremlins
     that say "Huh?" regarding jdk−131.

     There are probably dozens of us, if not billions, who would
     profit from a step−by−step tutorial style write up on this.

     Dunno about anyone else, but at least I would love to shuck
     the linux stuff and go native FreeBSD. Anybody willing?

Description: JDK (Java Development Kit) is a Sun Microsystems product for Java developers. Since its inception Java, JDK has become the most widely used Java SDK. Is the core of the Java JDK, including Java runtime environment, Java tools and Java-based library. The first step is to learn the Java JDK. Specially running on an x86 platform running on the server side Jrocket efficiency much better than the Sun JDK. SUN's JDK5.0 from the beginning, providing a generic and other very useful features, and its updated versions, operating efficiency has been a very large increase.
