This chapter describes how to install the product from a graphical user interface (GUI). It contains information on these subjects:

2.1 Installing the Product

Before you begin the installation process, ensure you have downloaded the appropriate version of the product for your operating system (see Table 1-5).

  1. On your local drive, locate the installer for the version of the product you want to install.

    Note:

    If you install the product on Linux or Solaris, see Section 1.5.1, "Ensure the Installer is Executable" for important information.

  2. Run the installer.

    The installation process begins and the Oracle JRockit Installer screen appears, followed by the Welcome screen (see Figure B-1).

  3. Click Next.

    The Choose Product Installation Directories screen appears (see Figure B-2).

  4. Click Next if you are satisfied with the default product installation directory.

    Note:

    If you want a different location for the installation you can pick one by clicking Browse or type a new directory into the Product Installation Directory field. By clicking Discard Changes, you set the selection back to the default directory.

    The Optional Components screen appears (see Figure B-3).

  5. Select which, if any, optional components you want to install with the product. Selecting:

    • Demos and Samples will install demo and sample files in the following directories:

      product_install_dir\demo

      product_install_dir\sample

      product_install_dir\missioncontrol\samples

    • Source Code will install the source code files for the Java platform in a compressed file at:

      product_install_dir\src.zip

  6. Click Next.

    If you are installing Oracle JRockit JDK on Windows, the optional Install Public JRE screen appears (see Figure B-4). Otherwise, go to step 9.

  7. If you want the Oracle JRockit JRE installed as the public JRE on your computer, select Yes; otherwise, select No (if you select No, go to step 9).

  8. Click Next.

    If you selected Yes to the Install Public JRE prompt, the Choose Product Installation Directories screen reappears, this time showing the default installation directory for the Public JRE (see Figure B-5).

    Note:

    If you want a different location for the installation you can pick one by clicking Browse or type a new directory into the Public JRE Installation Directory field. By clicking Discard Changes, you set the selection back to the default directory.

  9. Click Next (the installation starts immediately after you click Next).

    The Oracle JRockit Installer screen appears and the installation process continues, as indicated on the progress meter in the lower right corner of the screen (see Figure B-6).

    When the installation is complete, the Installation Complete screen appears.

  10. Click Done.
