    Default JDK installed, but not working on fedora

    I'm using Fedora system.

    JDK installed, but not working on fedora-jdk.jpg

    I searched jdk on yumex and it shows as above
    Previously there is a i686 jdk version, and when I type jave -version, I get

    Java Code:
    $ java -version
    java version "1.7.0_45"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (fedora-2.4.3.0.fc18-i386 u45-b15)
    OpenJDK Server VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode)
    but my machine is x86_64 , so it is a wrong JDK, and I uninstalled it on yumex.

    but now when I type jave -version, I get

    Java Code:
    $ java -version
    bash: /usr/bin/java: No such file or directory
    what should I do?

    I use Fedora 22 x86_64. I download the x86_64 Java JDK from here: Java SE Development Kit 8 - Downloads, extract it in /usr/local/lib64/jdk8_60 and use alternatives to setup the java/javac/jar etc commands. Also, I set ${JAVA_HOME} in my .bash_profile to make sure that it points to /usr/local/lib64/jdk8_60 so it will be recognised by applications checking for ${JAVA_HOME}. I never bothered with yumex/rpm/yum/dnf. They won't keep up with the latest releases as fast as I like it.

    Certainly advice I can stand behind. Package managers are great tools, but when it comes to development tooling that is a vital part of you being able to do your job, better keep it in your own control.
