The Guide Shows You How to Install the Latest Oracle-Sun Java JDK 7 32-bit Release for Fedora Linux 16 i686 KDE4 Desktop.

Especially relevant: at the Same Time I’m also Illustrating here the Easiest Way of Installing the New Downloaded .rpm Packages with Dependencies :)

The Screenshots of Installation Correspond to the Install on a Fedora 16 KDE Desktop but the Procedure on Gnome, XFCE and Lxde is Similar…

Following the Easiest and Practicable Way I have Expressly Excluded the Use of Terminal Commands here.

So Take the Time of Carefully Reading and Executing the Instructions Contained Here and All should Work Like a Breeze :)

Java Baloon

    Sun JDK 7 Linux i586.rpm
  2. Select the Open with Package Installer Option or Double-Click After

    We Suppose that you Browser like Firefox will Prompt you About the Downloading Procedure to Follow like Here.

    update-alternatives --install 
    /usr/bin/javaws javaws /usr/java/jdk1.7*/bin/javaws 1065

    Checking or Setting the System Java Version in Use with

    update-alternatives --config java

    And for the Java Compiler instead:
