Thread: Software needed to run an application written on Java

  1. #1

    Default Software needed to run an application written on Java

    Hello. I need to run some application which claims to be "an all Java version (Java 1.6++)". So my question is: what software do I have to install to run such an application?

    Thanks for your help.

    Ps: In case you want to know, the application I am making reference to is CirclePack.


    I'm running openSUSE 12.2.

    I'm running openSUSE 12.2.
    So you want to run a JAR file?

    Code:
    java -jar jarfile-name.jar

    Download jar from here :-
    http://www.math.utk.edu/%7Ekens/Circ...ePack-J2.3.jar

    Then open a terminal or konsole/terminal and execute command "java" and
    you should get something like this
    $java
    Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
    If you get that output just run the "jar" like this

    Code:
    java -jar CirclePack-J2.3.jar
    if you don't get the java "usage" stuff as mentioned above you should
    install it

    Code:
    sudo zypper in icedtea-web
    and then run the downloaded jar
    --
    GNOME 3.6.2
    openSUSE Release 12.3 (Dartmouth) 64-bit

    I tried to test this on my computer and it did not run. I have icedtea-web.
    here is output:

    java -jar CirclePack.jar

    Let us un-install openjdk and install oracle jre and configure browser
    plugin


    step 1
    Remove openjDk and plugin(icedtea)

    Code:
    su -
    zypper rm -u icedtea-web java-1_7_0-openjdk
    step 2
    download 32 or 64 bit accroding to you machine arch
    http://java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp?locale=en

    step 3
    open konsole/terminal
    Navigate to download directory
    Code:
    cd ~/Downloads
    step 4
    Install rpm
    Code:
    su -
    zypper in jre-7u40-linux-x64
    (or)
    Code:
    su -
    zypper in jre-7u40-linux-i586
    Step 5
    Install browser plugin

    For all users and browsers on machine:-

    Code:
    su-
    ln -s /usr/java/jre1.7.0_40/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
    /usr/lib64/browser-plugins
    For gecko based browsers Firefox and SeaMonkey alone :-

    Exit su
    Code:
    mkdir $HOME/.mozilla/plugins
    ln -s /usr/java/jre1.7.0_40/lib/amd64/libnpjp2.so
    $HOME/.mozilla/plugins

    Step6:-
    and finally "run" the jar

    Code:
    java -jar CirclePack-J2.3.jar
    --

    Depends on the issue of plugin you are using.
    Mozilla thinks that Java plugin version i use is safe



    If you get the latest plugin it should be fine for the time being till
    the latest exploit is found. Then you migrate to next version of java.
    The same is the case for flash. But you keep watching youtube right ?


    If you you don't want browser plugin, ignore step 5

    Strictly speaking, to run any Java app, you only need to have the appropriate JRE (Java Runtime Environment) installed. Although others may have suggested installing a JDK (Java Development Kit), it's not necessary but should include the JRE.

    Ths is because Java is distributed as "common code" and should only need the JRE to manage the specifics to run on hardware.

    As of today, if you install the <latest> JRE or JDK directly from Oracle's site (or update from repositories) it should be fully patched for all known vulnerabilities, particularly if you're running in a web browser. Earlier this year there was an extremely nasty "full compromise" vulnerability which your app might be warning about. Depending on how your app was written, it may or may not understand which java versions are vulnerabile.

    There are no security issues, never had, to my knowledge.

    The issue is the license: openSUSE is not allowed to distribute it,
    forcing users that want it to install it on their own (also means no
    automatic updates).

    Instructions here:

    SDB:Installing
    Java

    I don't see a smiley, so have you been living under a rock? There was a
    major brouhaha at the beginning of the year, and there are frequently
    security issues. Just google 'java security' or start here:
