Ok, I concede. I have been looking in vain for a zipped and tarred copy of any later version of Oracle's JDK 6 for Solaris SPARC (32-bit), but all I can find is the shell scrip that "installs" it. It seems that only the JDK 7 releases come as simple zipped files, but all archive version some as .sh's.
Anyone any idea's of where I can find a zipped version of it? I don't want to use the .sh files as I don't have root (or a sudoer) permissions to run the script, and I don't want to update anything on the system I need to use it anyway.
