What Java Runtimes Are Available?

Note, this page has moved and now lives at http://lopica.sourceforge.net/vm.html. Please click on the new address and update any bookmarks you might have.

Your Contributions Are Welcome

Web Start allows you to automatically install Java Runtimes. To help you find Java Runtimes for your operating system I collect and publish links to Java Runtimes grouped by operating system. Note, that I only include Java 2 Standard Editions, and not Java Micro Editions, Java Enterprise Editions or Java 1 (aka JDK 1.1.x).

If a Java 2 Runtime is missing, please send an email to comments@vamphq.com and I will add it along with proper credit in the hall of fame.

MacOS

OS X 10+ ships with a Java Runtime. No installation required. OS X 10.1+ includes Web Start as well.

Prior to OS X you are out of luck because Apple doesn't offer Java 2 Runtimes for download; only Java 1 Runtimes (called MJR 2.2.x) are available. Note, Apple has no plan to provide a Java 2 Runtime for older Mac OS. The only option left is upgrading your OS.
