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.

do you need the normal package or the SVR4 package? – golimar Sep 26 '13 at 10:40
Apologies, just the normal package. Thanks. – MeanwhileInHell Sep 26 '13 at 10:43
Maybe you can edit the .sh so that it only extracts the files and doesn't install anything – golimar Sep 26 '13 at 10:50
I've updated the question stating my lack of root privileges to run the script anyway. Forgot about that part :S – MeanwhileInHell Sep 26 '13 at 15:12… jdk-6u35-solaris-i586.tar.Z – Lynob Sep 26 '13 at 15:22
