== Java for i386 ==

Sun's Java is no longer in the hoary-extras repository, and has been taken out for legal reasons. You can build your own Java package by following the instructions on JavaPackageBuildNewVersions.
=== Breezy Badger ===

In BreezyBadger, Java is available as the Blackdown {{{j2re1.4}}} and Blackdown {{{j2se1.4}}} packages in the {{{multiverse}}} repository.

== Java on other Architechtures ==

Ubuntu PPC, please see: ["JavaPPC"].
Ubuntu AMD64, please see: ["JavaAMD64"].

== Installing the JDK ==

If you want to install the Java compiler as well as the runtime environment, the easiest thing to do is to [ get it directly from Sun]. Take care to use the "Linux self-extracting file" version. Converting the RPM with {{{alien}}} will not work.

Then follow the instructions as set forth on JavaPackageBuildNewVersions to create a .deb file you can install using {{{dpkg}}}.
