I have a server with Solaris 10 and Sparc arch., in which i am not a root user, and it's no able to be. Where there is installed a another version of JDK.

And now I need to install another version of Java,, without modify the environment variables, PATH, CLASSPATH, and so on. So to do this, I downloaded the specific jdk-1_5_0_22-solaris-sparc.sh but the question is Will change the environment this file or only extract to specified folder the lib's, directories?

Thanks in advance

You are on the right path to success.

As a non-root user you can install as many JDKs as you like. When you execute something like jdk-1_5_0_22-solaris-sparc.sh (*) it will not change anything in your environment, just unpack it. So just go ahead.


*) wauw, that's an old one!
