====Java Runtime Environment====
~**Java Runtime Environment** runs programs written in [[Java]]. Not to be confused with [[JavaScript]].

~Install the appropriate package, newer versions should be more secure:
~//**Where to find Java packages, .pet or .sfs**//
~**Version 1.8**
~~[[, >>>, >>> (July 2016) ASRI Éducation repository]], [[ thread at the ASRI Éducation Forum (in French language)]]
~~[[ jre-1.8u91-i586.sfs, >>>, >>> (June 2016) folder]], [[ thread]] packaged by [[gjuhasz]]
~~[[ jre1.8.0_60-x64_6.0.3.8.sfs]] //(temporally down)//, [[ more info]]
~~[[ JRE8u45Lin-i586.sfs (April 2015) thread]], packaged by [[musher0]]

~~[[ buildscript]] //(temporally down)//, make executable, run in terminal, sfs will go into /tmp, [[ more info]]
~~[[ jre1.7.0_17 script post]] written by [[jpeps]]
~Packages may also be available in the official repository for your Puppy either through the Puppy Package Manager or the SlickPet/QuickPet app.

==Version Check and Enabling==
~Verify the installed version via the command-line interface: %%(bash)java -version%%
~Alternatively visit one of the following pages:
~~[[ testjava (]]
~~[[ version (]] - finds even if disabled in browser

**Symlink for Mozilla (Firefox and Seamonkey)**
~A [[symlink]] may need adding to the plugin directory, for example:
~Newer versions:
~Create directory ##~/.mozilla/plugins## if it does not already exist
~%%(bash)ln -s /usr/java/java/lib/i386/ ~/.mozilla/plugins/
~Older versions:
~%%(bash)ln -s /usr/java/plugin/i386/ns7/ ~/.mozilla/plugins/
~Web browser configuration confirmation (older versions only, JavaScript needs to be enabled within the Web browser):
~~~Enable Java: //Tools > Options > ""LibreOffice"" > Java//
~~~Enable Java: //Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Enable Java//
~~~Enable Java: //Tools > Options > Content > Enable Java//
~~~Enable Java: //Tools > Quick Preferences > Enable Plug-ins//
~~~Enable ""JavaScript"": //Tools > Quick Preferences > Enable ""JavaScript""//
~Applications may need to be configured and re-started after installation.

==Java Development Kit (JDK)==
~An alternative to installing the runtime environment is to use the full development kit.
~Use an appropriate package, newer versions should be more secure:
~~[[ jdk-8u45-i586 sfs/pet post]], packaged by [[OscarTalks]]
