GNU Java Virtual Machine
I have a question regarding the version of Java virtual machine and Java compiler.
when I run the $java -version command in my RH linux system i get the following output:
java version "1.5.0"
gij (GNU libgcj) version 4.1.2 20070925 (Red Hat 4.1.2-27)
I think the 1.5.0 should be the version of JVM, however, i am not sure where can i found the specifications of this JVM. when i google for GNU JVM i just found the "classpath" project.
I would be glad if anybody can translate the output of version command for me.
Try asking about how to install Sun's JDK on linux on a linux forum. When I was playing with Ubuntu, I had problems with the JRE that came with Ubuntu and had to install Sun's version.
I already have SUN JDK but i don`t know why it was not set to be the JAVA Path.
I just wanted to know what are the properties of the JVM I was using before (GIJ).
That one is a 1.5 compliant JVM, that's all that lot means. The other version stuff (4.xxxx) is the Gnu version, which does not necessarily bear any relationship to the Sun versioning.
