The Guide Shows You Step-by-Step How to Install and Getting-Started with the Oracle-Sun Java JDK 7 Official Release for Linux RedHat RHEL 6.4 Gnome x8664 Desktop.

The Screenshots of Installation Correspond to the Install on a RHEL 6 Gnome Desktop but the Procedure on KDE, XFCE… Should be Near Identical.

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