I'm attempting to build a Ninite installer/updater for my own use and I've found it fantastic.

However, as part of the profile, I would like to include the installation of multiple versions of the 64-bit JDK (6, 7 and 8) as I do a lot of Java programming in my spare time.

Unfortunately, while I can see that Ninite supports multiple JDK versions (reference), I cannot find a way to include them in the installer.

I've attempted manually creating a URL like so: https://ninite.com/jdk6-jdk7-jdk8 and this works wonders for the 32-bit versions of the JDK, but I cannot find seem to find the URL parameters for the 64-bit versions.

I have tried varying combinations of: "jdkx64", "jdkx647", "jdk%20x64", "jdk%20x64%207" and "jdk64", to no avail.

Does anyone else familiar with Ninite know how to address the 64-bit versions of the JDK?

  • I know the pro version has a method for this. No idea how to form a URL to get this...

I heard back from Ninite.

The appropriate URL parameter for the 64-bit JDK is https://ninite.com/jdkx.

Unfortunately, I was not able to discover the URL parameters for specific 64-bit versions.


https://ninite.com/java8-javax8-jdk8-jdkx8-java7-javax7-jdk7-jdkx7-java6-javax6-jdk6-jdkx/ will install the latest JREs and JDKs of versions 6 to 8, both in 32 & in 64 bit.
