Java Development Kit 8 Update 181 (64-bit)
Java Development Kit is the official development kit for Java programming
language. Java Development Kit contains software and tools
you must compile, debug and run applets and applications written using the Java programming language.
JDK has a collection of programming tools, including javac, jar, and the
archive, which groups the associated class libraries into a single JAR file. This
tool also allows to manage JAR files, javadoc – the documentation generator,
that automatically generates documentation from source code comments, jdb –
the debugger, jps – the status tool of the process, which displays the process
information for current Java processes, javap – the class file disassembler,
and other components are also included.
Key content includes:
(In the bin / subdirectory) Tools and utilities that will help you develop,
run, debug, and document programs written in JavaTM programming
Environment of execution
(In the jre / subdirectory) An implementation of Java Runtime Environment
(JRE) to use by the JDK. The JRE includes a Java Virtual Machine (JVM),
class libraries and other files that support program execution
written in the Java programming language.
(In the subdirectory lib / subdirectory) Additional class libraries and support files
required by the development tools.
Applets and Applications Demo
(In the demo / subdirectory) Examples, with source code, programming for
Javaplatform These include examples that use Swing and other Java
Foundation classes and Java Debugger Platform architecture.
(In the subdirectory example) Examples, with source code, programming for
some Java APIs.
C header files (in the include / subdirectory) Header files that support native code
Programming with the help of Java Native Interface, JVM Tool Interface
other feature of the Java platform.
(In src.zip) Java programming language source files for all classes that make
the main Java API (that is, the source files for java. *, javax. * and a few
org. * packages, but not for com.sun packages. *). This source code is provided
for informational purposes only, to help developers learn and use Java
programming language. These files do not include platform-specific
implementation code and can not be used to rebuild class libraries. AT
extract these files, use a common zip utility. Or, you can use the pot
utility in the bin / JDK directory: jar xvf src.zip. The JDK also ships with a full Java Runtime environment. This consists of a Java virtual machine and the entire class
libraries present in the production environment, as well as additional libraries, internationalization
IDL libraries and libraries.
